Woman Dies In Sausalito Crash
A young San Francisco woman was killed yesterday when the auto in which she was riding turned over and burst into flames on Alexander Avenue in Sausalito.
The driver of the car, Robert Kapua Kim, 29, also of San Francisco, was booked into Marin County Jail on suspicion of felony drunken driving and manslaughter following the fiery crash.
Betsy Carolyn Brigham, 23, died in the accident, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Officers said Kim was west bound on Alexander near Highway 101 shortly before 7 p.m. when his vehicle struck a utility pole flipping over and caught fire.
Kim was treated at Marin General Hospital for minor injuries suffered in the crash. He was held in lieu of $10,000 bail to appear today in Marin Municipal Court.
Miss Brigham was a native of Idaho. Survivors include her father, Burnis Brigham, and a sister, Nancy Hoel, both of Genesee, Ida. She was the 24th traffic fatality in Marin this year, as compared to 25 traffic deaths for the same period last year.
Funeral arrangements were pending today at Russell and Gooch Funeral Chapel, Mill Valley….
