SAN JOSE – A driver died in a rollover collision over the weekend in San Jose, the California Highway Patrol said.
The crash was reported around 1 a.m. Saturday on Highway 101 south of Brokaw Road.
In a statement, the CHP said a 2020 Toyota Camry was traveling northbound when it veered to the right, hit a 2023 Tesla Model Y and “continued out of control in a northeasterly direction.”
The Toyota then collided with a wooden traffic sign pole and a metal light pole before crossing the North First Street onramp and traveling down an embankment, the CHP said, adding that the car rolled over before coming to a rest on its wheels.
San Jose firefighters pronounced the male driver of the Toyota dead at the scene just before 1:30 a.m., the CHP said. The Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office will release the driver’s identity once it is confirmed and his next of kin is notified.
The other driver, a 45-year-old San Carlos man, was not injured, according to the statement.
The collision remains under investigation, but the CHP said it does not suspect alcohol played a role.
Anyone with information about the crash can contact the CHP San Jose area office at 408-961-0900.
