Hospital releases statement after doctor killed in Danville crash


Investigators are confirming what had been presumed — a large tree fell on a woman’s car in the East Bay on Monday while she was driving, killing her. 

CHP says Dr. Lyudmila Beyzer was killed Monday morning when a tree along 680 in Danville up-rooted and fell directly on her car, killing her. 

It had been unclear if she drove into the tree.

That tree was said to be 50 to 60 feet high. 

Dr. Beyzer was driving north on 680 in Danville around 9 a.m. when the accident happened. 

The 58-year-old had worked at John Muir Health for more than a decade. 

The hospital on Tuesday released the following statement:

“We are deeply saddened to hear about the sudden and tragic passing of Dr. Lyudmila Beyzer. She was a member of the John Muir Health Physician Network for 15 years and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with her family, friends, patients, colleagues, and staff at this very difficult time.”
