Sacramento, CA (June 8, 2020) – Officials have identified Thelma Soto Barrios as the woman killed in the fiery crash on Highway 99 near 12th avenue on May 31.
 
At 2:25 a.m. early Sunday morning, dispatchers sent authorities to Highway 99 after reports of a serious collision that caused one vehicle to catch on fire.
 
According to CHP, Barrios, of Rancho Cordova, was a passenger in a Kia northbound on the highway.
