Man dies in hit-and-run rollover collision

 

A 58-year-old New Hampshire man is dead after a hit-and-run, rollover collision Wednesday on northbound U.S. 101 just south of Woodside Road, California Highway Patrol officials said.

The first report of the crash came in at 1 p.m. It appears a 2000 light brown Toyota Sienna clipped a 2006 silver Scion driven by the New Hampshire man. He lost control of the vehicle and it rolled in the center divide, CHP Officer Art Montiel said.

The New Hampshire man had his seatbelt on but suffered major injuries in the crash. He died at 1:50 p.m. at Stanford Hospital.

Some witnesses told CHP officers the driver of the Toyota was speeding, Officer Montiel said.

No other vehicles were involved and no other passengers were in the Scion.

CHP officers are asking for help locating the driver of the Toyota. They do not yet have a description of the driver.

Anyone with information about the person or the collision is asked to call the California Highway Patrol or 911.

So many speeders on Hwy 101, even with all the construction in recent years. We need more police patrolling the road, especially in construction zones.
