CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) - The San Diego County Medical Examiner identified Thursday the Chula Vista woman killed in a crash with a Border Patrol SUV in Eastlake.

The crash happened about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday at Otay Lakes Rd. and Hunte Parkway.

Maria Webb, 44, was driving a Pontiac Aztec south on Hunte Parkway when she was broadsided by the Border Patrol SUV. She died of blunt force injuries at the hospital.

Webb is survived by Mark, her husband of 23 years, and their 9-year-old daughter April.

"It's like a bad dream and you can't wake up.  She was a very giving and kind person.  She was the best mother and wife ever," said her husband.

Webb had just finished a shift as a cashier at WalMart. Her husband said she avoided the highway and took side streets for safety.  She was 2 miles from her home when crash happened.

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help Webb's husband and daughter.

Police said the Border Patrol agent was on duty at the time of the crash. The agent suffered minor injuries.

"She's never been in an accident or had any moving violations.  She's a very cautious driver, overly cautious.  With the rainy weather, she's not going to drive fast.  I don't believe she's at fault," said her husband.

Investigators have not announced what caused the crash or who was at fault. They are asking any witnesses or anyone with information to call the Chula Vista Police Department at 619-691-5151.
