    For unknown reasons, he was unable to stop the car and crashed into a Mercedes stopped in front of him, according to CHP Officer Art Montiel. Lucas was thrown from the vehicle and suffered major injuries, Montiel said.

    He was taken to Stanford University Hospital. The two occupants of the Mercedes involved it the collision, a 51-year-old woman and 55-year-old man, both also from Half Moon Bay, were treated for minor injuries caused by the crash, according to the CHP.
