A wrong-way driver ran into a taxi with three people inside on northbound Highway 101 in San Francisco early Thursday morning, leaving all four people dead, the California Highway Patrol said.
Just before 12:30 a.m., the CHP received “multiple calls” about a possible wrong-way driver. A CHP unit came across the head-on collision just a few minutes later.
Police said an “impaired” 34-year-old Peninsula woman behind the wheel of a Volkswagen Cabrio was driving southbound in the northbound lanes when she crashed into a Ford Escape taxi carrying a driver and two passengers. All four people were pronounced dead at the scene. The wrong-way driver was identified as Emilie Ross, 34, of Hillsborough.
