SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CA (August 7, 2023) – Early Saturday morning, a man and a woman were killed in a head-on accident on Interstate 280.

Authorities responded to the scene around 1:10 a.m., just north of El Monte Road on July 29th.

Officers say the driver of a 2007 Honda Civic was heading north in the southbound lanes. As a result, the Honda struck an oncoming 2021 Toyota Avalon head-on.

Medics arrived and pronounced the 23-year-old female driver of the Honda and her 23-year-old male passenger dead at the scene. Although, police have not yet released their identities.

Meanwhile, paramedics transported the two occupants from inside the Toyota to a nearby hospital for further treatment.
