Alcohol, speed apparent factors in double fatal crash
April 28, 2014, 05:00 AM Staff and wire report

MENLO PARK — Alcohol and speed appear to have played roles in a car crash that left two people dead off of Highway 101 in Menlo Park early Saturday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The driver of the vehicle, Gaudi Roxxane-Salgado Barrios, a 26-year-old East Palo Alto woman, and passenger Taufa Toutai Pupunu, a 27-year-old Redwood City man, were both pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash was reported on southbound Highway 101 near the Willow Road off-ramp at 1:52 a.m., the CHP said.

Barrios was speeding when she lost control of the car. It struck a tree, which launched it into the air and into another tree, the CHP said.

The Willow Road off-ramp was closed until about 3:30 a.m. while the CHP investigated the crash.

The results of a preliminary investigation into the crash indicate that alcohol appears to have been factors in the crash in addition to speed, according to the CHP.

Investigators continue to probe the circumstances surrounding the deadly crash.
