Woman dies after car crashes into Bay Area outdoor dining area

SAN JOSE (BCN)

A woman who was one of eight people injured Sunday afternoon when a man accidentally accelerated into an outdoor dining area in San Jose succumbed to her injuries the next day, police said.

The crash was reported at 12:27 p.m. outside of the Grand Century Mall on Story Road. Investigators determined a 69-year-old man accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brake and crashed his 2000 Toyota 4Runner into eight people sitting at various tables.

The three women and five men were all taken to hospitals, and one of the women died there, police said Tuesday. The victim’s name is not yet being released by the Santa Clara County medical examiner’s office. The driver also was hospitalized with minor injuries.


The woman is the 40th person to die in a traffic collision on San Jose city streets in 2020. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Detective Templeton of the Police Department’s Traffic Investigation Unit at (408) 277-4654.
