"Basically they were driving recklessly, they were driving at a high rate of speed."

The Scion driver was a 58-year-old man from New Hampshire.

He had his seatbelt on, but suffered major injuries.

He was rushed to Stanford Medical Center, but died a short time later.

Witnesses say the van, may have been a 2000 light brown Toyota Siena that was speeding.
