SAN JOSE, Calif. (March 28, 2024) — A fatal pedestrian accident happened Thursday morning in the northbound lanes of Highway 101 in San Jose.

The deadly crash occurred at around 3:40 a.m. on Thursday, March 28th, between Berryessa Road and McKee Road, according to the California Highway Patrol and KRON 4 News.

CHP officers responded first headed to the scene after a caller reported a pedestrian was nearly hit by a semi-truck while walking in the No. 4 slow lane.

However, by the time they arrived, the man had been struck and killed by a driver in a blue 2006 Chrysler sedan driven by Maria Ortega, 62, of San Jose.
