SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — At least one person was killed and two other passengers – both juveniles – were seriously injured after a stolen vehicle crashed and caught fire early Wednesday in San Jose, authorities said.

According to police, the crash occurred just before 1:20 a.m. as a man driving a stolen silver Hyundai westbound on West San Carlos Street lost control on an overpass crossing Guadalupe Creek, crossed over the eastbound lanes, hit the curb and flipped over before catching fire.

Fire crews were able to get the driver out of the vehicle, police said. He was later pronounced dead at a local hospital. His name was not
released.

The juveniles were taken to a hospital with injuries considered life threatening.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Detective Troy Sirmons at (408) 277-4654.

  1. Hopefully the owner of the car will be reimbursed the full value of a replacement. That is the most important consideration.

  2. This is such wonderful news indeed. Thank you Lord for getting rid of some more trash in our beautiful country. It is just sad that the other two losers lived.
    Please bless us with more glorious news such as this one.
