Witnesses said she was driving erratically, “being aggressive and making hand gestures” just before she was involved in a head-on collision on southbound Harshman Road near Airway Road and Woodman Drive at about 3:45 p.m., Riverside police Sgt. Dave Crigler said.
Witnesses said the woman appeared to be driving erratically on Harshman, headed toward Airway, when she sideswiped a school bus, then hit a second vehicle as she continued on.
She drove left of center as she approached the intersection at Airway Road, striking another vehicle head-on, the sergeant said.
Three other people were injured in the accident that involved as many as eight vehicles, he said, and they have been taken to different hospitals.
There were no children on the school bus, Crigler said.
“We don’t exactly know what the hand gestures were,” the sergeant said.
Zeke Bowling, whose girlfriend was driving one of the vehicles struck in the incident, said she was taken to a hospital and his daughter and son were also in the girlfriend’s vehicle.
Bowling characterized the fatality was the result of a road rage incident.
Crigler said he could not confirm whether the fatality was the result of road rage.

Police tell us their preliminary investigation reveals that a gold Saturn began pursuing a red Ford on I-75, near Stanley Avenue. The pursuit continued into Dayton, where the Saturn hit a blue car and ended up on its top at Wayne Avenue and East Fifth Street after that collision.
Police did speak with the driver of the red car and let that person go.
They told us they cited the driver of the Saturn for reckless operation. Officers said they believe the Saturn was pursuing the Ford as part of some kind of argument.
No one was injured, police said.
