BURLINGAME (CBS SF) — Two people who were killed in a crash in Burlingame on Monday have been identified as Daly City resident Zhong Liang Li and San Francisco man Henry Huanyu Situ, both 35 years old, according to the San Mateo County coroner’s office.
The two men and a third passenger were in a Volkswagen sedan heading north on Interstate 280 around 5:20 p.m., California Highway Patrol Officer Moises Escoto said.
For reasons that are still under investigation by the CHP, the driver of the sedan lost control and the vehicle drifted off the roadway south of Trousdale Drive, Escoto said.
The vehicle overturned several times and landed near several trees about 15 feet down an embankment on the right side of the highway, Escoto said.
Li and Situ were pronounced dead at the scene, he said.
A third passenger was taken to Stanford Hospital as a precaution, he said.
No other vehicles appeared to have been involved, according to the CHP.
It has not been determined if drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash, which remains under investigation by the CHP.
