The decedent was identified by the Contra Costa County Coroner's Division as Angel Beth Green, 46, of Sacramento.

The situation unfolded just before 3 a.m. Saturday on southbound I-680 just north of the Alcosta Boulevard interchange in San Ramon, according to Officer Tyler Hahn of the California Highway Patrol.

A Mercedes C230 struck the center divider in a solo crash, causing the sedan to stop in the No. 1 lane. The car was then struck by a Ford Fusion, the force of which ejected the driver out of the Mercedes, according to Hahn. The Mercedes came to rest in the No. 3 lane, where it was hit by a semi-truck and then careened into the center divider again.

The driver of the Mercedes -- later identified as Green -- was pronounced dead at the scene. No other parties involved in any of the crashes reported being injured, according to Hahn. The causes of the collisions remain under investigation.
