High-speed collision kills two, injures six
Two people were killed in a high-speed collision that left six others injured in Hayward on Friday night, police said today.
The pair was in a 2000 Pontiac-Trans Am traveling at high speeds north on Industrial Boulevard at Marina Drive, about two blocks west of Hesperian Boulevard, shortly after 9 p.m., police said.
The driver, a woman in her 20s, lost control of the car and crashed into a tree, according to police.
The car then rotated, continued traveling across the median and crashed into a 2014 Honda Pilot going south, police said.
The Pontiac driver was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.
Her passenger, a 22-year-old Nevada man, was ejected from the vehicle and transported to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley where he succumbed to his injuries, police said.
Six people in the Honda suffered minor injuries, police said.
Two of the six people were transported to Eden Medical Center and later released, according to police.
Police have yet to determine if alcohol or drugs was a factor in the incident, police said.
Anyone with information on the case, including the identity of the Pontiac driver, is asked to call Hayward police Sgt. Jason Corsolini at (510) 293-7149.
