A highway worker was killed and another was injured when a driver veered off the road on Highway 101 in Redwood City Tuesday morning, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said.
The crash was reported at 11:05 a.m. south of Woodside Road on southbound Highway 101, CHP Officer Art Montiel said.
The driver veered off of the road toward a nine-person crew that was working along the right shoulder and hit two of the workers, Montiel said.
One of the workers, identified as Mark Santos, 24, of San Mateo, was pronounced dead at the scene and the other was taken to Stanford Hospital with minor injuries.
The driver, a woman, was also taken to Stanford Hospital with minor injuries.
Montiel said investigators do not yet know what caused the woman to veer off of the highway.
