Three people killed in a fiery wreck on Interstate Highway 280 in Millbrae on Thursday when their vehicle careened off the roadway have been identified by the San Mateo County coroner's office.
The solo-vehicle crash was reported at 1:20 p.m. in the northbound lanes of the highway near Millbrae Avenue.
The vehicle apparently careened off the roadway, flipped and caught fire, California Highway Patrol Officer Grace Castillo said.
Robert Dejardin, 76, also of Belgium, was airlifted to Stanford Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
Another man was taken via ambulance to San Francisco General Hospital. His condition was not available.
Authorities did not say who was driving.
Several lanes of Highway 280 were blocked for much of Friday afternoon, snarling commute traffic for at least a mile. All lanes were open by about 5 p.m.
