A rollover crash on I-280 near San Mateo early Sunday morning left one person dead.
The crash was first reported just before 3 a.m. on Sunday at the intersection of SR-92, the road leading to the San Mateo bridge. According to authorities, 911 callers said that a black vehicle had rolled over with the driver still inside, and that a separate vehicle had collided with an unknown object in the southbound lanes of the highway.
Redwood City CHP officers responded to the scene. After a preliminary investigation, officers believe that the first vehicle was traveling southbound on I-280 when they took a sharp left turn for “unknown reasons.” As a result, the car drove off the road into a concrete pillar supporting the SR-92 over-crossing before coming to rest in the fast lane.
According to Redwood City CHP, a second vehicle then crashed into the disabled vehicle at 75 miles per hour. Police say the driver of the second vehicle’s attention was drawn elsewhere when the crash occurred.
The driver and the passenger of the second vehicle were able to exit their vehicle, and the passenger was transported to Stanford Hospital. The driver of the first vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene. The person has not been identified.
Officials said the driver of the second vehicle was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It’s unknown if the first driver who crashed was under the influence.
