Sunnyvale, CA—A three-vehicle collision killed a 24-year-old Milpitas man, who was apparently operating a vehicle at an “unsafe speed.” The fatal automobile collision occurred at the Mathilda Avenue on-ramp to Highway 101, just before midnight on Thursday, October 7, 2010, as reported by the San Jose Mercury News.
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reported a 2004 Nissan was traveling at around 65 mph, when it tried to enter southbound Highway 101 on the Mathilda Avenue on-ramp.
The CHP indicated, “Due to the unsafe speed, the Nissan failed to negotiate the curvature of the ramp and drifted into the No. 3 lane of the highway, directly in front of a 2005 Kenworth tractor-trailer. The collision forced the Nissan to then crash into a 1997 Toyota.”
A passenger of the Nissan, 22-year-old Manan Kadia of Santa Clara, suffered serious injured in the collision. He was rushed to Stanford Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.
The driver of the Nissan was also rushed to Stanford Medical Center for treatment of internal injuries. Sadly, his injuries proved fatal and he was pronounced dead at 12:15 a.m.
The other motorists involved in the collision were not injured.
Alcohol does not appear to be a factor. A full investigation is underway.
