The callers reported seeing the vehicle on the 57 and 60 freeways early Sunday morning, CHP officials said Thursday.

Officers said witnesses told them the red Camaro driven by Olivia Carolee Culbreath appeared to be going more than 100 mph.

“They were describing the vehicle, saying it was going the wrong way at a high rate of speed,” CHP Officer Rodrigo Jimenez said. “But we’re still asking for witnesses to call us.”
