Man who died after hit-and-run was Pacifica resident
April 19, 2016, 09:10 AM Bay City News Service

A 58-year-old driver who died after a hit-and-run collision on Highway 101 earlier this month in Redwood City has been identified as Pacifica resident Michael O'Brien, according to the Santa Clara County medical examiner's office.

The California Highway Patrol is asking for the public's help to find the driver who fled after the April 6 collision on Highway 101 just south of Woodside Road.

The vehicle was described as a light brown minivan with the partial plate "4AYY---," CHP Officer Art Montiel said.

Around 1 p.m., the suspect vehicle, initially described as a 2000 light brown Toyota Sienna, allegedly clipped a 2006 silver Scion driven by O'Brien, according to the CHP.

O'Brien, who the CHP initially said was a New Hampshire resident, then lost control of his car, causing it to strike the center divider and roll over.

Although O'Brien had his seat belt on, he suffered major injuries and was taken to Stanford Hospital, where he died around 1:50 p.m., CHP officials said.

Witnesses said the minivan was speeding at the time of the collision. No other vehicles were involved in the collision and no other passengers were in the Scion, according to the CHP.

Don't like it
Not sure
