Two right lanes of U.S. 101 were closed as officers investigated the crash and re-opened around 10:15 a.m.

The woman's white sports utility vehicle crashed at the Ellis Street overcrossing, according to CHP Officer Art Montiel.

"The information is preliminary, but it appears that a white Nissan Rogue was traveling northbound on U.S. 101 at the Ellis overcrossing when for unknown reasons the driver lost control of the vehicle," Montiel said.

"The vehicle veered to the right, hit the barrier, bounced back onto the freeway, hit the center divide, then flew back across the freeway and crashed into a tree on the right shoulder," Montiel said.
