Morgan Hill – A 46-year-old San Jose man was killed early Monday morning after a single-vehicle accident on U.S. 101 north of the Cochrane Road exit, according to California Highway Patrol officer Chris Armstrong.

The Santa Clara County Coroner’s Office was not releasing the name of the man at press time pending notification of relatives.

There were no passengers in the vehicle.

According to the CHP report, the driver of a 1999 Dodge van had been wearing a seatbelt as he traveled southbound just north of the Cochrane Road off-ramp. At approximately 12:10am, the van drifted off the road on the west side and crashed into a metal light post. The van then continued south on the raised dirt embankment for approximately 600 feet before going back down the embankment onto the off-ramp.

When the van was coming down, it began to roll, finally landing upright, straddling the right-hand lane and the shoulder, facing north.

According to the report, the driver was ejected during the rollover, despite the fact that he was wearing his seatbelt.

It was not clear at presstime if the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The accident is still under investigation.
