Worker killed when driver veers off Highway 101
August 05, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

A highway worker was killed and another was injured when a driver veered off the road on Highway 101 in Redwood City this morning, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said.

The crash was reported at 11:05 a.m. south of Woodside Road on southbound Highway 101, CHP Officer Art Montiel said.

The driver veered off of the road toward a nine-person crew that was working along the right shoulder and hit two of the workers, Montiel said.

One of the workers was pronounced dead at the scene and the other was taken to Stanford Hospital with minor injuries, Montiel said.

The driver, a woman, was also taken to Stanford Hospital with minor injuries.

The far right southbound lane of the highway remains closed this afternoon for the investigation into the crash and is expected to reopen at about 3 p.m., according to the CHP.

Montiel said investigators do not yet know what caused the woman to veer off of the highway.
