Comments Off

One person died and another two were injured in a car accident on Interstate Highway 280. The three car accident happened during Thursday morning rush hour traffic. The car accident happened in San Jose at Race Street and ended with one car on fire.

At about 7:38 a.m. the three-car accident was reported to the CHP. Several drivers who passed the scene reported seeing a black Toyota Camry as far back as Wolfe Road in Cupertino traveling at speeds up to 100 mph and at times traveling in the center divider, according to CHP Officer Todd Thibodeau.

At about 11 a.m. a completely burned-out Honda sat ripped open like a tin can, facing the wrong direction. A yellow tarp flapped in the wind, partially melted to the wreckage of the victim’s Honda. Glass crunched under investigators feet as they measured skid marks on the pavement. A third car, a Mazda 626, had already been removed from the scene.

According to the California Highway Patrol the two people who were hurt only had minor injuries. They are still investigating the accident.
