Driver in fatal crash identified

 

The man killed in a multi-vehicle crash in Menlo Park on Tuesday night (June 28) has been identified as 78-year-old Newark resident Andres Berdeja, according to the Santa Clara County medical examiner's office.

Mr. Berdeja was driving a green 1994 Pontiac sedan at a high speed on the westbound March Road on-ramp to U.S. 101 at around 9:40 p.m. when he lost control of the car, according to the California Highway Patrol.

He collided with several vehicles and crashed into the center divider, officers said.

Mr. Berdeja suffered serious internal injuries in the crash and was taken to Stanford Medical Center for treatment. He later suffered cardiac arrest and succumbed to his injuries, CHP officials said.

A 10-year-old girl who was a passenger in another vehicle suffered minor injuries in the crash.
