SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — A 24-year-old San Jose man died and three others were injured in a suspected drunken driving crash early Saturday morning on Interstate 280, the California Highway Patrol said.

The solo-car crash happened about 1:45 a.m. when a 2013 BMW E350 sedan went off the connector from northbound Highway 17 to southbound 280, according to the CHP.

The BMW failed to negotiate the curve and left the roadway, struck a tree, rolled several times and then ended up on its wheels on southbound 280, authorities said.

    Traffic auto crashes will always occur. A “s**t happens” event and when you are driving, you hope & pray that the “s**t” doesn’t happen to you.
