EAST PALO ALTO (KRON) – One person died last night at what’s being called a major injury collision in East Palo Alto, according to police.

At 8:04 p.m. Monday, a car was going on westbound University Avenue “at a high rate of speed,” according to Interim Chief of Police Jeff Liu. At that time, the driver “lost control, and collided into a tree killing the driver who was the only occupant of the car.”

While police did not initially identify the driver, he was later identified as Jesus Belmonte Castro. There is no evidence speed racing was involved in the collision.
