Traffic Accident on Interstate 80 Kills One, Two Arrested

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (June 9, 2022) – A multi-vehicle crash on Highway 101 took the life of one motorcyclist Tuesday morning.

According to the authorities, officers responded to the incident at US-101 southbound to Interstate 80 eastbound elevated connector ramp involving a Nissan sedan.

Upon arrival, they discovered the sedan blocking one of the two traffic lanes on the ramp.

In addition, a man in his 30s riding a motorcycle approached the disabled Nissan and lost control of the vehicle.

As a result, he struck the ramp wall and was ejected over the wall, landing him on top of a moving Honda sedan going westbound on I-80 to the US-101 southbound connector ramp.

Afterward, the Honda stopped and blocked the path of an approaching Subaru Forester. Subsequently, the Subaru collided with the rear-end of the Honda.

Unfortunately, the motorcyclist died at the scene while authorities booked the Honda and Subaru drivers into custody under suspicion of driving under the influence.

The crash prompted a massive backup of both 101 and 80 and stretched across the Bay Bridge into the East Bay.

San Francisco Officials are asking anyone with information about the multi-vehicle crash on highway 101 to contact (510) 557-1094.
