Fatal injury traffic collision
Submitted By Officer John Flynn, Fremont PD
The Fremont Police Traffic Unit was dispatched to a major injury traffic collision on August 24, 2011 at 9:30 a.m. The collision occurred on Washington Boulevard, near the I-680 off-ramp, in the City of Fremont. The initial investigation revealed the following:
There had been a non-injury collision on southbound I-680, north of the Washington Boulevard off-ramp. The two parties agreed to exchange information off of the freeway.
The two parties, a 47-year-old male and a 37-year-old female took the Washington Boulevard off-ramp and stopped along the north curb of Washington Boulevard. They both exited their vehicles and were standing on the north sidewalk exchanging information.
At that time, a 2004 Buick being driven by an 83-year-old Fremont resident, was travelling westbound on Washington Boulevard. The Buick left the roadway, drove up the sidewalk and impacted the 47-year-old male causing major injuries. The 47-year-old male and the Buick continued down the embankment, coming to rest against a chain link fence and a tree.
When officers arrived on scene they found the 47-year-old male pinned under the car and the 83-year-old driver of the Buick unresponsive. Both were transported from the scene to San Jose Regional Trauma Center.
The 47-year-old male died as a result of the collision. The 83 year old male has been admitted. Drugs or alcohol did not seem to be a factor in this collision.
Any with information regarding this collision is encouraged to contact Officer Terry Sasser or Officer John Flynn at (510) 790-6760.
