The incident occurred at approximately 2:250 p.m. The motorist was driving a Ford Mustang turning south on University Avenue from Kavanaugh Drive when the driver of a Lexus GS 400 failed to stop at a red light and struck the Mustang, according to East Palo Alto Police Cmdr. Jeff Liu.
The driver of the Mustang was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver’s wife was a passenger in the Mustang. She and the driver of the Lexus were transported to Stanford Hospital. Their injuries are unknown at this time. Police closed university Avenue between Bay Road to Notre Dame Avenue for further investigation.
No charges were brought against the driver of the Lexus. However, the investigation will be forwarded to the District Attorney’s office for that decision.
