ARCADIA — Authorities Tuesday identified a 35-year-old woman killed in a car-to-car shooting on the eastbound Foothill (210) Freeway in Arcadia.

Witnesses began calling the California Highway Patrol at 9:06 a.m. Saturday to report a solo vehicle crash involving a black Mercedes-Benz at the Baldwin Avenue off-ramp, CHP Officer Vince Ramirez told City News Service.

“A car-to-car shooting had occurred,” Ramirez said.

Bertha Hernandez, of Monrovia, was pronounced dead at the scene. CHP Officer Ramberto Salcido Jr. said. She suffered at least one gunshot wound.

The Mercedes-Benz crashed into the right shoulder sound wall as a result of the shooting, Salcido said. Hernandez was the only person in the vehicle.

No description of the suspect’s vehicle was released.

The CHP asked anyone who saw anything unusual in the area at the time of the shooting or has any other information to call Officer Carlos Martinez at 323-353-8381.
