Southbound Highway 101 in Palo Alto Reopens After Deadly Crash

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.

There were no fire personnel in the fire truck at the time of the collision.
