Wrong-Way Crash Involving Taxi Cab on Highway 101 Kills 4
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (October 3, 2019) – Four people were killed following a wrong-way crash involving a taxi early Thursday morning in San Francisco.
The crash happened around 12:24 a.m. on Highway 101, just north of Candlestick Point and south of Third Street.
CHP officials said, a Volkswagen was traveling southbound in the northbound lanes of Highway 101 near the Candlestick Park off-ramp. It crashed head-on into the taxi cab carrying three people, a driver and two passengers picked up from the San Francisco airport.
As a result, the taxi driver, a man in his 60s, and his two passengers all died at the scene. The wrong-way driver, a woman in her 30s, was also killed in the crash.
Authorities did not release the names of the victims pending formal identification by the coroner’s office.
CHP officials closed all lanes of the highway for about four hours while they conducted their investigation.
