 Los Gatos Fatal Crash Santa Cruz Highway 17, Near Redwood EstatesHighway 17 Collisions Leave One Dead, Others Injured

LOS GATOS, Calif. (Feb. 15, 2019) — An 84-year-old man is dead and an 85-year-old man suffered major injuries, following two separate crashes involving a rollover crash and a fallen tree Thursday afternoon on Highway 17.

The California Highway Patrol responded to the collisions in the northbound lanes of the highway, just south of Summit Road.

The initial crash was reported at 2:36 p.m. and involved a grey Toyota Highlander that had overturned onto its roof and was blocking the slow lane on its roof. The driver inside was unconscious.

The second incident involved a tree that fell from the southbound side of the highway and onto a Cadillac Escalade traveling northbound. The impact knocked the driver unconscious and their vehicle crashed into at least three other vehicles. The driver suffered major injuries and was rushed to a nearby hospital where they later died.

The collisions were blocking all northbound lanes of Highway 17.
