Los Osos woman killed in weekend crash near Avila Beach identified

The California Highway Patrol has identified the woman killed in a crash near Avila Beach early Sunday morning as Denise Snyder, 44, from Los Osos.

CHP says around 12:25 a.m., Snyder was driving north on Avila Beach Drive, just south of San Luis Bay Drive.

When she was near Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort, her 1985 Chevrolet pickup truck left the road for unknown reasons, hitting a small tree before traveling down an embankment, hitting part of a telephone pole and then a larger tree.

Snyder was pinned inside the truck and had to be removed using the jaws of life.

She was taken to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center and then flown to a Fresno hospital where she died.

No one else was in the truck and no other vehicles were involved.

Anyone who saw the accident happen is asked to call the California Highway Patrol at (805) 593-3300.
