An elderly man died Wednesday afternoon after he drove his minivan into a tree, San Jose police said.
The man, whose age and identity has not yet been made public, was pronounced dead at the scene, making him the 12th traffic-related fatality in San Jose this year, according to Sgt. Jason Dwyer.
Police still aren't exactly sure why his 2003 Dodge minivan struck a tree at Monterey Highway and Edenview Drive in South San Jose. A female passenger was taken to a hospital, and police said she is expected to survive.
No more details have been released.
