Waheed Etimad Dies, Wrong-Way Driver Kayla Wilson Killed in San Francisco Crash

 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (February 3, 2019) – Two people were killed following a wrong-way crash early Sunday morning in San Francisco.
 
The wrong-way driver was identified as 21-year-old Kayla Wilson of San Jose, and the minivan operator was identified as 40-year-old Waheedullah Etimad of Concord, according to the San Francisco Medical Examiner’s Office.
 
The incident, first reported at 2:33 a.m., occurred after a driver in a sedan veered onto Highway 101 going south in the northbound lanes.
 
The wrong-way driver, identified as Wilson who probably got onto the freeway at the Vermont Street exit, crashed into two cars before plowing into a minivan carrying seven people just south of Cesar Chavez Street, CHP spokesman Bert Diaz said.
 
Both the sedan driver and the minivan operator, an Uber driver who was carrying six passengers, were killed in the third crash.
 
Etimad was a student at Diablo Valley College who drove for Uber part time. The father of seven came to the U.S. in 2016 “on a special case after working and putting his life in danger for the U.S. mission in Afghanistan,” according to a GoFundMe campaign to aid his family.
 
One of the nine injured, a passenger in the minivan, was in critical condition, Diaz said.
