U.S. 101 cleared following fatal crash

 

The California Highway Patrol has reopened U.S. 101 in San Mateo this morning (Feb. 6) after a fatal crash forced its closure for more than two hours.

Units responded to reports of multiple crashes on U.S. 101 near Third Street beginning at 2:35 a.m., CHP Officer Nicole Pacheco said.

Preliminary information indicates that the driver of a vehicle lost control and collided with the center divide, followed by a second crash possibly involving a Honda. One or more vehicles was then struck by a fuel tanker, Pacheco said.

One person was killed, Pacheco said, and a coroner was dispatched to the crash site.

There were no reports of a hazardous materials spill from the fuel tanker.

Southbound traffic was diverted off the highway before Third Street until the crash was cleared and a Sig-alert was canceled at 4:40 a.m.

The crash remains under investigation.
