SUNNYVALE (BCN) – One person was killed in an early morning four-vehicle accident that closed a segment of eastbound state Highway 237 in Sunnyvale for more than three hours Wednesday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The crash was reported at 2:03 a.m. on Highway 237 just east of Lawrence Expressway, CHP Officer Ralph Caggiano said.
Initial reports indicated the crash involved two vehicles, but once officers responded to the scene they found four vehicles were involved, Caggiano said.
The person who was killed ended up on the westbound side of Highway 237, he said, although it was unclear if that person was ejected from a vehicle or had been standing on the roadway and was struck by traffic.
The fatal collision resulted in a partial closure of both directions of Highway 237, and a Sig-alert was issued at 2:22 a.m.
That alert was cancelled at 5:37 a.m. when the roadway re-opened.
Two other people were injured in the crash and transported to nearby hospitals, and all four vehicles involved were impounded, according to the CHP.
