Man dies in crash on I-280 in Woodside


The Santa Clara County medical examiner's office has identified a 71-year-old Cupertino man who died in a solo-vehicle crash Wednesday afternoon in Woodside as Richard Stiller.

California Highway Patrol officers received a call at 12:30 p.m. of a crash on northbound Interstate 280 south of Farm Hill Boulevard, where Stiller was driving a gold 2015 Honda Accord and veered off the road.

The Honda hit a light pole, continued down an off-ramp and hit a tree, CHP officials said.

Stiller suffered major injuries and was taken to Stanford Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Stiller had a seatbelt on and was the only person in the car.

Stiller ranked among the top 30 runners in Northern California in the late 1970s, according to a profile of him on Bob Anderson's Ujena Fit Club website. Stiller's fastest mile time was 4 minutes, 31 seconds.

CHP officers do not know whether drugs or alcohol played a part in the crash, although it did not appear so at the scene.

Anyone with more information about the crash is asked to call Officer Brian Wester at (650) 369-6261.
