DUI crash shuts down highway in Palo Alto

Bay Area

PALO ALTO (KRON) – A multi-vehicle DUI crash shut down all lanes of Hwy-101 at San Antonio Road in both directions Thursday morning.

All lanes have since reopened.

CHP says 20-year-old Diego Andres Ruiz-Marin of Stanford was driving a red Ford Focus while drunk when he hit the center divide and then swerved into the second lane, then stopped and got out of the car.

That’s when a work truck carrying gravel slammed into his car.

Ruiz-Marin was not hit.

It happened around 1:45 a.m. in the northbound lanes at the San Antonio Road exit.

A person in the gravel truck was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

CHP is reminding everyone not to drink and drive.
