A 20-year-old woman died after she was ejected from her vehicle when crashing on I-280 northbound early Sunday morning. 

Around 1:52 a.m., Redwood City California Highway Patrol went to a call of a car rolling over north of Edgewood Road.

Police have identified the woman as Anjela Louise Tendero Jose, who is from South San Francisco. 

Jose was also a cheerleader at San Jose State University.

Authorities say it is unknown to how fast Jose was going and as to why her car flipped. 

According to police, Jose’s car veered off the road and onto a hill.
