Fatal motor vehicle accident leaves 1 dead in California

A fatal crash on Highway 101 in San Jose closed the highway for several hours, according to local sources. California Highway Patrol responded to the motor vehicle accident that claimed the life of an 18-year-old man and sent one other person to the hospital. The driver believed to be responsible for the initial crash is a minor, and it is not clear whether criminal charges will be filed against him as of this report.

According to the report, the 16-year-old driver was headed northbound with his 18-year-old passenger on Highway 101 around 1 a.m. the morning of May 20 when the accident occurred. It appears the driver jumped a curb while attempting to enter the northbound on-ramp. This caused the car to leave the road and slide down an embankment before coming to rest in two highway lanes.

According to the report filed by CHP, around 8:30 a.m. a 42-year-old man was driving a vehicle towing a heavy trailer east on Interstate 8.
