Lynne Forester, 70, of Tomales, was driving east on Bodega Highway
near Furlong Road around 4:15 p.m. when she veered across the double yellow
lines while negotiating a curve, according to CHP Officer Marcus Hawkins.
She collided head-on with a westbound 2008 Chevy Silverado driven
by Catherine Beck, 62, of Bodega Bay, Hawkins said.
Forester was taken to Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced
dead, Hawkins said.
Alcohol is not thought to be a contributing factor in this
collision, but the road was wet from recent rain, Hawkins said.
