Police are trying to figure out what happened to a Bay Area mother whose body was found over the weekend on the side of Interstate 680 near San Ramon.
Authorities say 47-year-old Roma Bhatia's body went unnoticed on the busy freeway, where she was possibly hit by a car. Bhatia had died by the time the California Highway Patrol arrived at about 8:20 p.m. Saturday. There was no vehicle at the scene and no witnesses have come forward.
Police can't figure out why Bhatia was walking on the freeway, or how her body ended up on the side of the road, just south of Bollinger Canyon Road. Her car was nowhere near the freeway, and police say Bhatia was at a hair salon not three miles away from the freeway shortly before authorities were called to the scene, according to news reports.
