Palo Alto woman dies after car crash in Menlo Park

 

A 57-year-old Palo Alto woman died the day after sustaining injuries in a car crash on University Avenue at Bayfront Expressway in Menlo Park on Wednesday, Nov. 20.

Police continue to investigate the collision.

Jenice Chou died at Stanford Hospital on Nov. 21, according to the Santa Clara County Coroner's Office.

A preliminary investigation indicated that a 2002 Toyota, driven eastbound on University Avenue by Ms. Chou, jumped the median into oncoming traffic in the westbound lane, according to police. The car then hit a 2013 Mercedes, driven by a 60-year-old Union City woman, head-on.

The drivers were both taken to the hospital, police said. The other woman sustained serious injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening.

At this time, drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor, according to the report.

The collision snarled traffic for hours as investigators collected evidence. The Menlo Park Police Department asks that anyone with information about the accident call 330-6300.
