SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Police are investigating a crash that left a woman dead along Broadway early Monday morning.

The crash happened just after 12:30 a.m., authorities say.

Sacramento police said a driver is suspected of being under the influence at the time of the crash. The driver lost control of their car and hit a fire hydrant and several parked cars, ejecting a passenger.

That passenger, a woman, later died from her injures. The driver has been taken into custody.

The names of the driver and the woman have not been released at this time.

A part of Broadway between 5th Avenue and 39th Street was closed as officers investigated the scene. The road was reopened by 3 a.m.

It’s unclear what led up to the crash.
