    A 911 address mix-up may possibly be to blame for the death of six-year-old Ian Uro. Uro was pronounced dead on arrival at 9:45 a.m. when he was taken to the emergency room of the Beth Israel Medical Center.

    A man died this morning, and another was seriously injured, when their car overturned on southbound U.S. Highway 101 in East Palo Alto, a  California Highway Patrol officer said.

    According to witnesses, the driver of the silver Chevy Malibu appeared to be racing against a black vehicle when he lost control of the  car, hit the sound wall, and crashed on the University Avenue onramp at  around 2:15 a.m., CHP Officer Art Montiel said.

    The driver died at the scene and the passenger was transported to a hospital suffering from serious injuries, including possible head trauma,  Montiel said.

    Both men were described as Hispanic men in their early 20s.

    The University Avenue onramp was closed to traffic as of 4 a.m.

    Anyone with information regarding the other vehicle involved is urged to call (888) TELL-CHP.
