The driver will not be charged with any vehicle code violations, the CHP said.
Mr. Rossi was traveling north on Skyline Boulevard and "for some unknown reason failed to negotiate the turn," Officer Niemeth said. Excessive speed and substance abuse were not factors, the CHP said.
The accident, reported at 8:56 a.m., resulted in the closure of Skyline Boulevard. By 12:30 p.m., authorities reported it was open in both directions.
Andy Cohen takes
out election papers
Fresh off a short-lived campaign for the county Board of Supervisors, Andy Cohen has taken out papers to run for re-election to the Menlo Park City Council, according to the city clerk's office.
The former judge, known for unpredictable voting and occasionally heated exchanges with city staff, finishes his second term on the council this year.
Current committee assignments include serving on the housing element update steering committee. During his campaign for supervisor, Mr. Cohen championed the building of secondary units, also known as "granny units," as a way to add lower-cost housing to the city.
His entry brings the pool of candidates to five. Incumbent Kelly Fergusson intends to run, along with Housing Commissioner Carolyn Clarke, firefighter Dave Bragg, and Transportation Commissioner Ray Mueller.
Mr. Cohen did not respond to a request for comment as to whether he would file the papers he pulled on July 17. The filing period remains open until Aug. 10, with a possible five-day extension if one of the incumbents decides not to run.
