Palo Alto southbound Hwy 101 remains closed through morning

All lanes of southbound U.S. Highway 101 south of Embarcadero Road in Palo Alto will remain closed until some time after noon, following a fatal Sunday morning collision between a box truck and a stopped fire engine, according to Caltrans.

The driver of the box truck died at Stanford Hospital after rear-ending one of two fire trucks that were in the slow lane around 4:30 a.m., according to a California Highway patrol spokesman, and hazmat crews are working to clean up 100 gallons of diesel that spilled on the roadway. There were no fire personnel in the fire truck at the time of the collision.
