One man was killed after his vehicle hit a tree along Middlefield Road east of Rengstorff Avenue this morning.
Shortly before 10 am, Mountain View police responded to reports of a solo vehicle crash along eastbound Middlefield Road. When officers arrived on scene, they learned that a male driver in a white pick-up truck was driving westbound on Middlefield just west of Rengstorff. The truck then crossed the median and continued west in eastbound lanes on Middlefield Road where it eventually crashed into a tree along the sidewalk.
No other vehicles were involved.
The driver, a middle-aged man, was unfortunately pronounced dead at the scene. A cause for the fatal collision is currently under investigation.
Eastbound lanes along Middlefield Road are expected to remain closed into the afternoon commute hours. Please seek alternate routes if you take Middlefield Road home. We appreciate your understanding and patience while we investigate the scene and clear the road.
Anyone with additional information on this crash is asked to call Sgt. Bryan Albarillo at 650-903-6733.
