UPDATE: Excessive Speed Blamed In Crash That Left 1 Dead, 2 Injured In East San Jose

SAN JOSE (CBS SF/BCN) – A two-car crash in San Jose resulted in one person dying and two others being injured Wednesday morning, according to police.

The crash was reported at 8:07 a.m. in the area of South White Road and Almond Drive, just south of Tully Road in East San Jose.

One person was pronounced dead at the scene while two others were taken to a hospital with moderate injuries, police said.

San Jose police said the investigation showed a 2002 GMC sports utility vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed northbound on South White Road in the number 2 lane when it hit a 2003 Toyota minivan preparing to make a left-hand turn onto South White Road from Almond Drive.

The adult male driver of the Toyota was pronounced deceased at the scene, while an adult female passenger was taken to a local hospital with minor to moderate injuries. The driver's identity was withheld until family members were notified.

The adult male driver of the GMC was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening. Police said because of the excessive speed the GMC driver would be booked for vehicular manslaughter after being discharged from the hospital.

It was the fourth fatal collision and the 4th victim of 2022, police said.

Anyone with information on the crash was urged to contact Detective O'Brien #3527 of the police department's Traffic Investigations Unit at 408-277-4654.
