A 79-year-old Antioch woman died Tuesday of injuries suffered in a car accident at a busy intersection in San Carlos last weekend, according to the Santa Clara County medical examiner's office.

Patricia Rogers was involved in a collision that occurred Saturday at Elm Street and San Carlos Avenue, about three blocks southwest of the San Carlos Caltrain station, according to the medical examiner's office.

Rogers was transported to Stanford Hospital in Stanford, where she died Tuesday.

San Mateo County sheriff's spokeswoman Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt said the accident is under investigation and no one has been arrested.

The crash, reported at 12:40 p.m. Saturday, happened when a black Chrysler PTC driven by a 48-year-old woman from San Carlos collided with a white Dodge Charger driven by a 50-year-old man from San Ramon, Rosenblatt said.

Jeanne Bowyer, Rogers' daughter, said that her mother was a passenger in the Dodge driven by Rogers' son Frederick Rogers and was headed to a restaurant when the driver of another car ran a red light and crashed into the passenger side of their car.

Patricia Rogers was taken to the hospital while unconscious. Frederick was treated for injuries and later released, but will have to visit a doctor for a follow-up examination, said Bowyer, who lives in Antioch.

The female driver of the other car remained at the scene to talk to investigators, Bowyer said.

Patricia Rogers was born and raised in San Francisco, was an at-home day care provider and cake decorator for more than 20 years in Antioch and was married for 57 years to her husband, Fred, who died last year, Bowyer said.
