East Palo Alto woman was driving car early Saturday morning
Alcohol and speed appear to have played roles in a car crash that left two people dead off of U.S. 101 in Menlo Park early Saturday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The San Mateo County Coroner's Office has identified the victims as Gaudi Salgado Barrios, 26, of East Palo Alto, and Taufa Toutai Pupunu, 27, of Redwood City.
The crash was reported at 1:42 a.m. on southbound U.S. 101 near the Willow Road off-ramp, the CHP said.
The preliminary investigation indicates that the car, a Toyota sedan, was traveling at a high rate of speed and failed to negotiate the off-ramp's right turn, Officer Art Montiel said.READ FULL TEXT HERE
