Burlingame: Fatal Highway 101 crash under investigation

BURLINGAME — California Highway Patrol officers are investigating a fatal collision that closed Highway 101 lanes early Sunday, authorities said.

Shortly after 11:55 p.m. Saturday, CHP officers responded to reports of a rollover collision in southbound Highway 101 lanes south of Millbrae Avenue just before the Broadway off-ramp.

When officers arrived, they learned that a Honda traveling southbound had turned to its right, hitting an impact attenuator, rolling over onto its roof and landing in the roadway’s No. 1 lane.

Moments later, a Land Rover southbound in the No. 1 lane struck the Honda, ejecting the Honda’s driver and causing her to hit a temporary concrete barrier.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene, while the Land Rover’s driver suffered minor cuts to a wrist. San Mateo County coroner’s officials responded to the scene, and the woman’s identity was not immediately available.

The CHP issued a Sig-alert closing all southbound lanes north of Broadway at 12:22 a.m. Sunday, with the No. 1 lane re-opening shortly after 2:15 a.m. and all lanes clear by 5:30 a.m.

No information was available Sunday on possible collision factors, including alcohol or substances.

Anyone with information may call the CHP Redwood City field office at 650-369-6261 and speak with Officer Sanders, ID 22211.
