Fatal Crash in Sunnyvale — Nov 22, 2016
Two men on the run from a San Francisco robbery led police on a chase that ended in Sunnyvale. The passenger was killed when the driver, Zain Dadabhai, 19, of San Francisco crashed the get-away car on a dead-end road. California Highway Patrol was alerted to the high-speed chase at approximately 12:45 a.m. as they headed south on Highway 101. As the suspects passed Ralston Avenue in Belmont, CHP took over the pursuit. The two men took 101 to southbound Highway 85 before going on to westbound Highway 237. They went on to Grant Road, Mountain View and then east onto Freemont Avenue to Sunnyvale. Authorities revealed they drove at speeds upwards of 100 mph. They crashed when they reached a dead-end where Freemont comes to El Camino Real. The Honda Civic they were driving hit a light pole and then five parked cars. It then flipped over and ejected the passenger. He was an 18-year-old from San Francisco. He was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries before being released, and then arrested on DUI causing injury or death, felony evading causing injury or death, and vehicular manslaughter.
