The Ukiah Daily Journal is reporting that Roberta Gault, 21, of Half Moon Bay, was killed Sunday night when her car collided head-on with another vehicle on Highway 101 north of Willits.

CHP Officer Erik Van Emmerik said Gault had been working at the Earthdance festival last weekend in Laytonville, and investigators thought she might have fallen asleep at the wheel.

Van Emmerik said the offical cause is still under investigation, and alcohol or drugs have not been ruled out as a cause. He said the CHP was unaware of any medical conditions Gault may have been suffering from that may have contributed.
