The 24-year-old Salida woman was a victim of the deadly accident which was reported at 12:34 a.m., just north of Pelandale Avenue.

As per the reports, California Highway Patrol said Peralta was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe south on Highway 99 when she was struck by a 2004 GMC Yukon which was driving the wrong-way at the time.

Prior to hitting the Tahoe, the Yukon was allegedly traveling north in the southbound lanes of the highway 99 and then side-swiped a 1997 Toyota.
