SAN JOSE, CA (February 14, 2019) – A woman died after being struck by a vehicle while seeking help after a crash in San Jose early Sunday morning. Reports from the California Highway Patrol indicated that the deadly collision happened at the interchange of Highway 101, 680 Freeway, and 280 Freeway at around 6 a.m.
According to CHP Officer Ross Lee, the victim and her husband were driving from southbound Highway 101 to northbound 680 Freeway when they were involved in a minor crash. The woman got out of their vehicle and searched for help while the husband wanted to wait for a tow truck.
