February 12, 2012- A Tulare woman was killed in a crash north of Tulare, at 1:20 AM, on Sunday.
Rosa Estrada, was a passenger in a 2005 Toyota Corolla, driven by Giovanni Ferreira, of Visalia. Ferreira was northbound on the J Street on-ramp when he failed to negotiate a curve and ran off the road.
The Toyota ran through a metal guard rail and overturned several times. The vehicle continued down a steep embankment, and collided with a tree, before coming to a complete stop.
Ferreira was wearing a seat belt and sustained minor injuries. He was treated at Kaweah Delta Medical Center in Visalia.
Estrada was not wearing her seat belt and was ejected from the car. She was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
The CHP said alcohol was a contributing factor in the collision. Ferreira, 22, was booked into the Tulare County Main Jail on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence.
