Passenger Killed After Driver Falls Asleep at Wheel in San Jose Crash

 
SAN JOSE, CA (January 10, 2019) – A passenger asleep in a box truck was killed Wednesday morning when the driver fell asleep at the wheel on Highway 101 near McKee Road.
 
The 67-year-old man from Orange County who was driving the box truck told California Highway Patrol officers that he dozed off just before the crash, which happened around 3:47 a.m.
 
The pair was traveling from Southern California and had been on the road for several hours. The unidentified driver fell asleep at the wheel, losing control of the box truck, as it veered to the right embankment and flipped over.
 
News reports say the passenger was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. The 64-year-old passenger from Orange County suffered fatal injuries while the driver suffered major injuries.
 
The crash also caused a fuel spill onto the highway, but the rain had washed away. In addition, northbound traffic was diverted at Alum Rock Avenue and by 6 a.m., one lane on the highway was reopened. All but the slow lanes were open by 9:42 a.m.
 
Authorities are investigating this deadly crash.
