OAKLAND -- A 76-year-old woman passenger killed in a Highway 13 crash Friday afternoon has been identified.

Masimiaki Havea, an Oakland resident, was ejected from the 2001 Toyota Sequoia SUV in the crash on south Highway 13 just south of Joaquin Miller Road, authorities said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Her name was released by the Alameda County Coroner's Office Saturday morning.

Driver Chrystina Havea, 18, also an Oakland resident, was seriously injured in the crash and was taken to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley for treatment. Three other passengers were transported to Highland Hospital -- Oakland residents Kaufoou Havea, 22, and Lepolo Havea, 48, who suffered major injures, and Lata Salt, 48, also from Oakland, who suffered moderate injuries.

Updates on their conditions were not available Saturday afternoon.

The crash at 3:45 p.m. Friday snarled afternoon traffic for several hours. No arrests have been made.

According to CHP, the SUV was traveling faster than the posted 65 miles per hour when it drifted out of its lane and struck the center divide. The driver then overcorrected, causing the vehicle to flip several times and then land upright again in the center divide on its wheels, facing traffic. No other vehicles were involved.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
