Stanford student alleged to have caused fatal crash still in hospital
October 09, 2013, 05:00 AM

A 24-year-old Stanford University student who allegedly caused a fatal crash in South San Francisco early Saturday morning remains in the hospital, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

Zachary Katz was arrested after he allegedly drove the wrong way onto southbound U.S. Highway 101 near Sierra Point Parkway and crashed into an SUV taxicab at around 3:50 a.m. Saturday, California Highway Patrol Officer Mike Ferguson said.

The taxi then veered across several lanes of traffic and was struck by a Mazda, Ferguson said.

A passenger in the taxi, 62-year-old Pedro Soldevila, of Puerto Rico, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the CHP.

The taxi driver and a second passenger were hospitalized with major injuries.

The driver of the Mazda was not hurt.

Katz was arrested on DUI-related charges and taken to San Francisco General Hospital with major injuries, Ferguson said.

The CHP is awaiting medical clearance from doctors to book him and turn the case over to the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office, Ferguson said.

Katz is not likely to be released before the weekend, Ferguson said.
