OAKLAND (BCN)

A 17-year-old girl who was killed early Monday morning when a car in which she was a passenger crashed into a wall in West Oakland has been identified by the Alameda County coroner's office as 17-year-old Sariah Cleveland of Oakland.

Cleveland was riding in a white 1995 Mercedes C220 that collided head-on with a pillar supporting elevated BART tracks at Fifth and Union streets at about 1:25 a.m. on Monday, Oakland police spokeswoman Johnna Watson. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Oakland police have only identified the driver of the Mercedes as a 24-year-old Oakland man. He was transported to a hospital where he is listed in critical condition, according to Watson.

She said a preliminary investigation indicates that the driver was speeding while traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of Fifth Street and then failed to negotiate a turn, just west of Union Street.

The driver lost control and the car crossed over the raised center median and collided head-on with a support pillar for the elevated tracks, police said.

Investigators believe alcohol may have been a factor in the collision, Watson said.
