Woman Killed in Crash Near Levi's Stadium Identified

A driver who died Wednesday when her Honda sedan collided with an SUV near Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara was identified as 54-year-old Yen Nguy, of San Jose, according to police.

Santa Clara police responded at 4:49 a.m. to a report of a traffic crash at the intersection of Tasman Drive and Great America Parkway several blocks east of the stadium, police Lt. Kurt Clarke said.

Police determined that Nguy had been driving west on Tasman in her 2003 Honda Accord when she collided with a 2003 Chevy Tahoe SUV. The Tahoe, driven by 51-year-old San Jose resident Marlen Sotelo, was traveling north on Great America Parkway toward the intersection, Clarke said.

Nguy died at the scene and the SUV driver was transported to a hospital where she was treated and released, he said.

The cause of the fatal collision remains under investigation, he said.

Police rerouted traffic from the intersection while conducting an inquiry into the crash, but announced on Twitter shortly before noon that the roadblocks had been lifted.
