Distraught driver in Belmont collision
July 20, 2013, 05:00 AM

A San Carlos woman was taken to the hospital for evaluation Wednesday evening after a reckless drive through Belmont, which ended in a collision.

At approximately 5:30 p.m., Belmont police received a report of a reckless driver passing cars on the wrong side of the road north on Sixth Avenue near Ralston Avenue. The vehicle, a Volkswagen sedan, went west on Ralston Avenue where, at one point, it reportedly passed cars by driving on the sidewalk. The Volkswagen turned south on Alameda de las Pulgas from Ralston Avenue to Carlmont Drive, where it attempted to turn right. However, the vehicle took the turn wide and stopped at the curb, narrowly missing a parked car. The driver then attempted to back up, but collided with a Maserati sedan that was eastbound on Carlmont Drive, according to police.

Responding officers contacted the driver of the Volkswagen, a 21-year-old San Carlos woman, whose name is being withheld. The driver, who was unlicensed, was not injured. She appeared to be suffering from some type of emotional crisis and was transported to an area hospital for evaluation. The driver of the Maserati was not injured in the collision, according to police.
