LOS ANGELES - A Montebello woman was found dead on a Long Beach (710) Freeway off-ramp near East Los Angeles on Saturday after witnesses reported a solo-vehicle crash.
Officers were dispatched at about 5:15 a.m. to the southbound freeway at Third Street in response to reports of a crash involving a black 2003 GMC, California Highway Patrol Officer M. Eshleman said.
Officers found Rosa Valdez, 21, "lying in the roadway of the Third Street off-ramp."
The woman was believed to have been the driver of the GMC, but an investigation continued to determine what occurred, Eshleman said.
