MARIN COUNTY (CBS SF) – Authorities in Mill Valley are investigating a crash involving multiple vehicles and a pregnant woman who were struck by a driver who apparently had a medical emergency and drove off Highway 101, according to Marin County Sheriff’s officials.
The crash happened around 2:25 p.m. at the In-N-Out restaurant in unincorporated Marin County at 798 Redwood Highway in the Strawberry Village Shopping Center, according to the CHP.
The Marin County Sheriff’s Department said that the driver of a truck had some sort of medical emergency while driving on northbound Highway 101.
The truck — a green GMC Sierra — lost control, crashing through the fence that runs alongside Highway 101, then across Redwood Highway and into the parking lot, located at 798 Redwood Highway, according to CHP Officer Andrew Barclay.
A sheriff’s spokesperson confirmed that a pregnant woman was hit.
Six vehicles were struck and damaged in the parking lot. Four of the vehicles were parked and two were moving when they were stuck, Barclay said.
Both the driver of the truck and the pregnant woman were transported to a hospital, the sheriff’s department spokesperson confirmed.
South Marin Fire later added that up to eight people total were hospitalized.
At about 8:45 p.m, the California Highway Patrol said the mother and her baby appear to be doing okay, but that the mother suffered some broken toes in the crash.
The driver of the truck is in stable condition and appears to have minor injuries, according to CHP Officer Andrew Barclay.
The crash shut down the Redwood Highway for a period of time and slowed traffic on northbound Highway 101.
As of shortly after 3:30 p.m., the Marin County Sheriff’s Twitter account posted that normal traffic would be resuming shortly as the scene was cleared.
