Redwood City Accident Claims Life of 17-Year-Old, August 2, 2016
The California Highway Patrol announced the death of a 17-year-old boy from Elk Grove in crash and roll of a 2004 Buick sedan on Highway 101. He was a passenger. The driver was a 15-year-old boy from Sacramento. He had been driving southbound on Highway 101 just before 8:30 p.m. when he attempted to exit at Whipple Avenue and veered violently to the right across all lanes of traffic. He crashed into a 2003 Toyota SUV and flipped the Buick several times. The 17-year-old boy was ejected from the sedan although he’d been wearing a seat-belt. He died at the hospital. The 15-year-old driver and another passenger, a 22-year-old man from Sacramento, suffered only minor injuries. The driver of the Toyota, its sole occupant, was unharmed. No charges have been filed or arrests made. California Highway Patrol does not feel drugs or alcohol played a part in the accident.
