Man Struck By Car After Solo Crash on Highway 101
GILROY, Calif. — Todd Elmore, 53, of San Jose died Thursday in a collision on Highway 101, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The crash took place about 9:38 p.m. on August 2, near Leavesley Road. The victim reportedly had a solo crash in his black Ford Crown Victoria.
The vehicle struck a bridge railing and then spun around 180 degrees. He then got out of his crashed vehicle and ran across traffic lanes from the right side to the left side. That’s when he was struck by a 21-year-old woman driving a Toyota in the northbound lanes. The young woman swerved to avoid hitting the wrecked vehicle, but instead she ended up hitting the victim who was reportedly running in the left lane.
Traffic Accident Investigation
At this time, it’s unclear if one or both of the people involved will be deemed at fault for this collision. A full investigation into the circumstances is underway by police.
We extend our heartfelt prayers to the family of Mr. Elmore at this difficult time.
