The San Mateo County coroner's office has identified a man killed in a crash on state Highway 92 on Wednesday afternoon, Feb. 23, as 68-year-old Robert Capurro.
Capurro, a Redwood City resident, was driving east on the highway when his Chevrolet Blazer drifted into westbound traffic and struck a big-rig just east of the Skylawn Memorial Park cemetery at about 2:15 p.m., CHP Officer Art Montiel said.
Capurro died as a medical helicopter was preparing to airlift him to a hospital, Montiel said.
It has not yet clear what caused Capurro to steer into oncoming traffic, according to the CHP.
The crash blocked traffic for about an hour and a half.
