Menlo Park: Driver killed by debris on U.S. 101

 

An elderly man was struck in the neck and killed by an unidentified object while driving northbound on U.S. 101 in Menlo Park early Friday afternoon (Sept. 16), according to the California Highway Patrol.

Witnesses said the man, who appeared to be in his early 80s, was struck by the item when it smashed through his windshield near Willow Road at about 1 p.m., said CHP Officer Art Montiel.

After being struck, the driver collided with the center divide, eventually coming to a stop. No other vehicles were involved in the accident.

The two left lanes of U.S. 101 were closed as of 2:30 p.m.

Is the object still "unidentified"? No one found it in the car or on the streets?

How bizarre.
