A 67-year-old Morgan Hill man died of a medical condition while he was driving in south San Jose Monday morning, police said.
About 11:18am Feb. 15, California Highway Patrol officers received a call reporting a silver vehicle with a male slumped over the steering wheel, stopped in the far left two lanes of U.S. 101 northbound, south of Bailey Avenue, reads a press release from CHP.
Officers arrived and located the vehicle, a 1999 Mercedes, on the right shoulder of U.S. 101. The driver, whose name has not been released, was unconscious, police said.
Fire and emergency medical personnel responded and performed first aid on the man, police said. The man was transported to Kaiser Permanente hospital, where he was pronounced dead due to “unknown medical conditions,” says a press release from CHP.
Officers investigated the vehicle and roadway, and determined that a collision had not occurred.
