Highway 101 Fatal Crash

I’m Ed Smith, a Vallejo car accident attorney. A single vehicle collision injured four occupants on the morning of Sunday, November 13, 2016. Sadly, the driver of the vehicle passed away due to the grave nature of their injuries.

What Happened?

A motorist was traveling along Highway 101 in their BMW coupe carrying three passengers just after 2:00 am. For reasons that are not known, the driver took the exit for Third Avenue and lost control of their vehicle on the exit off-ramp. For this reason, it caused the driver to veer their vehicle off the roadway and coming to a complete stop after crashing into a tree.

Were They Okay?

According to officials from the California Highway Patrol, the driver of the vehicle was pronounced deceased at the scene. The three passengers, all of which are residents from San Mateo, were transported to a local hospital. Two of the passengers, one 21-year-old and one 22-year-old, sustained minor injuries in the crash. Unfortunately, the third passenger, a 21-year-old, sustained major injuries and was taken to the Stanford University Medical Center via ambulance.

What Caused the Crash?

Authorities are currently investigating the cause of the crash at this time. However, investigators suspect that speed, alcohol and along with other potential factors, may have led to the cause of the collision. Officers from the California Highway Patrol are encouraging any witnesses to the accident to call (650) 369-6261.
