According to The Mercury News and KTVU News, the tragic accident occurred on Saturday night. Officers reported the wreck shortly after after 11 p.m.

The incident happened on May 15 when a Nissan Ultima and a Nissan Sentra collided in Cupertino. They crashed on northbound Interstate Highway 280, south of Wolfe Road.

The California Highway Patrol said both vehicles then went off the roadway due to the impact. The Ultima slammed into a tree while the Sentra came to a stop with front-end damage.
