An accident reported at 12:04 p.m. in the northbound lanes of Bollinger Canyon Road between Harcourt Way and Watermill Rd. has left one person dead and the thoroughfare closed as San Ramon police investigate its cause.
Passersby, at least one of them a physician, reported seeing a car into a tree at that location with a preliminary assessment of the driver determining that no pulse was present.
Coroner’s officials identified Redwood City resident Eissa Kishek, 32, as the driver.
San Ramon police released a statement relative to the incident later in the afternoon:
On 03/05/2016, at approximately 1203 hours, the San Ramon Police Department was dispatched to the area of Bollinger Canyon Rd. near Harcourt Way, to a report of a solo vehicle accident.
The initial call to dispatch was from a witness who reported seeing a silver vehicle travelling west bound on Bollinger Canyon Rd. at a high rate of speed. The vehicle reportedly left the roadway, striking several trees on the north shoulder of Bollinger Canyon Rd., between Harcourt Way and Watermill Rd.
Officers from the San Ramon Police Department as well as members of the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District arrived on scene and found that the driver of the vehicle sustained fatal injuries as a result of the collision. There were no other occupants within the vehicle and no other vehicles involved in the collision.
During the preliminary investigation, it appears that speed and wet roadways were factors in causing the collision.
