Rayleen White has been identified by authorities as the victim in a car collision that occurred on May 8 on Highway 99 in Madera County. Ms. White, a 17-year-old mother of seven weeks, was a passenger in a car driven by 20-year-old Sidney Kelley, an Oakland resident. Reports indicate that CHP officers attempted to pull the car over, which was driving at 25 miles per hour on a highway with a 70 mph speed limit. Instead of stopping, Ms. Kelley is said to have left the freeway at the Robertson Boulevard offramp in Chowchilla at an extremely high speed, crashing into another car, but kept driving as the highway patrol gave chase, allegedly hitting speeds of about 100 mph before crashing into a tree on Highway 233. Ms. White reportedly died at the scene while Kelley sustained significant injuries. She was arrested on multiple charges including vehicular manslaughter and driving without a license
