The accident happened around 11:30 pm on the Great America Parkway onramp to Highway 101. A car carrying Angela Vilbar Bontilao, her daughter Carina, and two other women were leaving a late night church service and traveling westbound on Great America Parkway in a Subaru Forester. A northbound 2012 red Mercedes C-250 was exiting Highway 101 at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control and veered across the median, crashing into the Subaru.

91 year old Angela Vilbar Bontilao and her 61 year old daughter Carina Kubow were both killed in the collision. The other two women in the car sustained moderate injuries in the accident. The driver of the Mercedes sustained major injuries and was rushed to a hospital. He has been identified as 26 year old Vinod Bonthu, and has been arrested on suspicion of DUI. The investigation is ongoing.
