Woman visiting from India killed in head-on crash on Skyline Boulevard
August 09, 2013, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

A woman visiting from India was killed in a head-on crash on Skyline Boulevard near Woodside Wednesday evening, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The woman, Sarani Banerjee, 49, from Howrah, India, was in the back seat of a Toyota Camry just before 7 p.m. on Skyline Boulevard, a quarter-mile south of Old La Honda Road, CHP Officer Art Montiel said.

The car was driven by her son, Shamik Banerjee, 31, of Mountain View and her husband, Kalyan Banerjee, 61, was in the passenger seat, Montiel said.

The car was heading north on Skyline Boulevard on a curvy part of the road when it was driven off the road, Montiel said.

Once the driver returned to the road he collided with a Chevy Monte Carlo driven by a 58-year-old woman from Nice, Calif., near Clear Lake.

The Camry flipped and came to rest on its roof.

Sarani Banerjee was pronounced dead at the scene. Her husband was transported by helicopter to Stanford Hospital with major injuries.

Her son was also taken to the hospital. He suffered only minor injuries, Montiel said.

The Chevy driver, and sole occupant of the vehicle, was not injured in the crash, Montiel said.

The road was closed for about four hours after the fatal crash, Montiel said.

The cause of the crash is under investigation, according to the CHP.
