    All lanes of southbound U.S. Highway 101 south of Embarcadero Road in Palo Alto have reopened following a fatal Sunday morning collision between a box truck and a stopped fire engine, according to the California Highway Patrol.

    The driver of the box truck died at Stanford Hospital after rear-ending one of two fire trucks that were in the slow lane around 4:30 a.m., according to a CHP spokesman, and hazmat crews were faced with cleaning up 100 gallons of diesel that spilled on the roadway.
