A 30-year-old Walnut Creek woman was reported to be brain dead after a crash last Friday afternoon on Highway 4 in Hercules.
California Highway Patrol officers told the Contra Costa Times that Marie Kalamantis, 30, lost control of her 1997 Infiniti while driving east on Highway 4 east of the Franklin Canyon Golf Course. The crash threw her from her car; she was not wearing a seat belt.
The investigation is continuing. No signs of drugs or alcohol were found at the crash. On Tuesday, Kalamantis was reported to be hospitalized at a regional trauma center while surgeons prepared to harvest her organs.
