Gina Gould, 38, a resident of Half Moon Bay, died in a collision with a truck Wednesday at 7:45am on Edgewood Road [map], reports the Mercury News. She was identified on Thursday.

As she drove downhill on a curving section of Edgewood just west of Crestview Drive, her car spun counterclockwise and slid onto the wrong side of the road, CHP Officer Amelia Jack said.

A heavy-duty truck headed westbound swerved right to avoid Gould’s car but struck the convertible’s passenger side, Jack said. ...

Jack said the cause of the crash is still under investigation, but it appears that the convertible’s speed and the wet road from an earlier rainstorm may have played a role.
