Box Truck Driver Joeffrey Catahan Dies after Crashing into Back of Fire Truck in Palo Alto

 
PALO ALTO, CA (August 4, 2019) – A man died after rear-ending a Palo Alto Fire Department fire truck responding to a crash early Sunday morning.
 
The first crash happened around 3:29 a.m. on Highway 101 at Embarcadero Road. A black Honda Accord crashed due to high speeds and the driver suffered minor injuries. As a result, at least one fire truck arrived at the scene.
 
Around 4:20 a.m., a white box truck, driven by Catahan, then struck one of the responding fire trucks that were in the slow lane. Officials said the fire vehicles had their emergency lights illuminated at the time of the crash.
 
Paramedics rushed the box truck driver to Stanford Hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries. The Santa Clara County coroner’s office identified him Monday as Joeffrey Catahan, 47, of Union City.
 
All southbound lanes of Highway 101 were closed for about six hours as hazmat crews worked to clean up 100 gallons of diesel that spilled on the roadway. All lanes reopened around noon Sunday, according to Caltrans.
