Taxi Driver Among 4 Dead in Wrong-way Crash on Highway 101
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (Oct. 3, 2019) – Two men and two women died early Thursday morning in a head-on collision on Highway 101 in San Francisco.
A taxicab carrying two passengers was struck head-on by a suspected drunk driver killing all four people in the two vehicles.
The driver of the cab, a 42-year-old Berkant Ahmed, of San Carlos, worked for National Cab Company. His passengers were a 62-year-old Barrington, Illinois man and a 57-year-old Chicago woman. One of the two passengers was ejected in the collision. The suspect in the wrong-way vehicle was described only as a 34-year-old woman from Burlingame.
The crash took place in the northbound lanes of Highway 101, just north of Candlestick and past Paul Avenue. Police were alerted to the wrong-way driver prior to the collision, but were unable to catch up to the car before it collided with the cab driver.
The taxi cab driver leaves behind a wife and children.
Police officers are investigating the crash to determine if in fact drugs or alcohol played a role.
