A Car Collides with Several Vehicles Resulting in Death

A woman who was critically injured in a horrific crash in North San Jose last week has died from her injuries, police said. The woman, whose identity has not been released, was driving a large pickup towing a trailer loaded with two additional trucks when the crash took place on September 22 at the intersection of Capitol Avenue and Berryessa Road. Several vehicles were involved and one of the vehicles rolled over in the crash. An adult woman was hospitalized in critical condition. Police said Wednesday she had succumbed to her injuries. According to officers, the driver was involved in three separate hit-and-run collisions in San Jose and Milpitas that took place over the span of an hour before the fatal crash.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation, but police believe speed may have been a factor. San Jose Police said a woman was the 52nd victim of a traffic fatality in the city this year after a multiple-vehicle collision on Capitol Avenue. The crash occurred around 4:30 p.m. when the woman’s truck and trailer sideswiped a parked minivan. The truck then left the roadway and collided with a tree. The impact of the crash caused the trailer to jackknife and the lead truck on the trailer to break loose, rolling on top of the towing truck. A picture posted by San Jose Police shortly after the crash showed a pickup truck that had rolled over and another pickup truck with extensive front-end damage.

This latest fatality brings the total number of traffic fatalities in San Jose to 50 for the year, which is on pace to shatter last year’s record-breaking total of 60. Police asked drivers to work together to prevent future crashes. Drivers should drive slowly and carefully and not use their phones when they are driving. If you have any information about this crash, please contact Detective O’Brien of the Traffic Investigations Unit.
