A woman who died in a car crash in Concord early Sunday morning has been identified by the Contra Costa County coroner’s office as 18-year-old Pittsburg resident Taleah Montanez.
Montanez died in the crash reported at 12:41 a.m. on Kirker Pass Road.
Her vehicle apparently went off the road and struck a signal pole, prompting the closure of Kirker Pass at Hess Road for more than three hours, police said.
The cause of the crash is under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call traffic investigator Justin Wilson at (925) 603-5962.
