A passenger who died in a crash on Skyline Boulevard in Woodside has been identified by the San Mateo County coroner’s office as 27-year-old Campbell resident Woodrow Gibson.
The crash was reported at about 7:30 p.m. Friday on Skyline south of Rapley Ranch Road near the Thomas Fogerty Winery, according to the California Highway Patrol.
A white BMW 540i was speeding south and the driver lost control along a curve, causing the car to go off the right side of the roadway and hit a tree, then roll back into the southbound lane, CHP officials said.
Gibson died at the scene, while the 27-year-old driver was taken to Stanford Hospital and was in critical condition as of Saturday.
CHP investigators said evidence at the scene indicated impairment played a role in the crash, but more details were not immediately available.
Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to call Officer Taylor Barry with the CHP’s Redwood City-area office at (650) 369-6261. — Bay City News
