One killed in double big rig crash in Santa Clara County

GILROY – A 49-year-old San Juan Bautista was killed early Tuesday morning when his big rig crashed into another big rig on Highway 25 near Gilroy, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The collision was reported about 7:30 a.m. north of Bolsa Road, according to the CHP.

The CHP said a 2002 Freightliner traveling southbound could not stop in time to avoid hitting a 2008 Kenworth making a left turn onto the two-lane highway from a private driveway.

The driver of the Freightliner suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the CHP. The Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office will release the man’s identity once it has been confirmed and his next of kin is notified.
