Investigators are trying to figure out what caused a 20-year-old Arroyo Grande woman to veer off the road and crash.
Investigators say Alicia Carreras was driving close to her parents' house in Arroyo Grande around 3:00 a.m. Thursday when her car crashed into a tree near Stanton and Lyn Roads.
More than two hours later, a driver spotted her car. Officers used the "Jaws of Life" to get her out, but it was too late. She was declared dead at the scene.
Carreras graduated from Nipomo High School in 2007. Math teacher Greg Gracia never had her in his class, but he knew her well. "She had fun, she really liked her friends. Her friends personified her as a really good friend. They could count on her. She was somebody that could be there for them," Gracia said.
Carreras was attending Allan Hancock college and planned to eventually attend a four year school.
"She was always fun to talk to and catch up with and see how she was doing. And she was doing well," Gracia added.
Investigators don't believe drugs or alcohol were to blame for the accident. Toxicology results are pending.
