Sunnyvale man dies after losing control on HWY 101

A Sunnyvale man died in a solo-vehicle crash this morning in Mountain View, California Highway Patrol officials said. 

At about 8:05 a.m. CHP officials received a call from someone reporting a crash just off the Ellis Street off-ramp from southbound U.S. Highway 101.

A preliminary investigation indicates that a black 1995 Honda was traveling south on Highway 101 approaching the Ellis Street off-ramp when a white 2014 Honda cut in front of the other vehicle to exit at Ellis Street.

CHP officials said the driver of the black Honda tried to avoid hitting the white Honda and lost control of the vehicle. 

The black Honda crashed into a perimeter fence and overturned. The Sunnyvale man, who was 29, was taken to Stanford Hospital where he died. 

CHP officials said neither alcohol nor drugs appear to have played a role in the crash.
