1 Dead, 1 Injured In San Jose Car Crash

Posted By Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP || 9-Aug-2011

A recent car accident in San Jose on Interstate 880 left one person dead and another injured, according to a recent article in the San Jose Mercury-News. The accident, which occurred shortly before 6 a.m., involved a car that was traveling north on the southbound side of the freeway.

The car, a grey sedan, may not have had its headlights on, which would have made it difficult to see in the early morning light as it traveled the wrong way up the freeway. Before long, it crashed into another car, which was traveling the same direction as the rest of the traffic on that side of I-880. The crash killed the driver of the second car, a 21-year-old woman.

The driver of the car traveling the wrong way suffered major injuries and was taken to Valley Medical Center. California Highway Patrol officers are still investigating the crash, and they are not releasing the injured driver’s name, since they believe he may be charged with drunk driving following the accident. Meanwhile, police are still trying to trace his path back to where he entered the freeway.
