All lanes of southbound U.S. Highway 101 continue to be shut down this morning due to a fatal hit-and-run crash in Menlo Park, a California Highway Patrol officer said. Officers responded to reports of a crash at about 5:40 a.m. near the Marsh Road, CHP Officer Art Montiel said. Preliminary reports indicate that a red Honda Civic was traveling south and when it was rear ended by a 1960s or 1970s pickup truck, Montiel said.
The Honda stopped in a center lane and was struck a second time by a taxicab, Montiel said. The Honda sustained severe damage and the driver was killed, Montiel said. The pickup truck fled the scene. All southbound lanes of Highway 101 remained blocked as of 8 a.m. while emergency responders clear the roadway and officers investigate the crash.
A Sig-alert was issued at 6:00 a.m. and remained in effect at 8 a.m.
