Mendocino County authorities are trying to identify a woman killed Friday in a fiery vehicle crash in Navarro.

Officials believe she could be a Mendocino County resident but because her body was badly burned, efforts continued Monday to determine her name and find family.

She crashed about 4 p.m. while driving on Highway 128, which connects Cloverdale with the Mendocino Coast south of Albion. Passing through the tiny community of Navarro, near the Navarro General Store, the woman’s car ran off the rural highway, hit a tree and burst into flames, the CHP said.

She was the only occupant of the car.

Mendocino County sheriff’s Lt. Shannon Barney said dental records may be needed to learn her identity.
