SAN BRUNO – The man who was killed in a crash on Interstate Highway 280 late Saturday night has been identified as San Bruno restaurant owner Isaac Mejia.
The cause of mishap remains unclear for a 51-year-old San Bruno restaurant owner who died Saturday night after he slammed his car against a wall on Interstate 280, police said.
According to the California Highway Patrol, restaurateur Isaac Mejia was driving north near the Crystal Springs Road on-ramp when he lost control of his 1998 Mercedes around 11:20 p.m. and hit a concrete wall on the east side of the freeway. Police said it wasn’t clear if Mejia died due to the collision or “for medical reasons.”
After slamming into the freeway wall, the Mercedes hit a guard rail and then shot across four lanes of 280 and collided with the center divider wall, police said. Authorities pronounced Mejia dead at the scene. He was wearing a seat belt.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation. No other vehicles were involved.
Mejia owns the Don Pico’s Mexican Bistro and Cevicheria, which his family has owned since 1975.
Mejia, 51, was declared dead at the scene and later identified by the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office. He is the owner of Don Pico’s Mexican Bistro and Cevicheria in San Bruno, which has been owned by his family since 1975.
No other vehicles were involved in the collision, although a complete shutdown of the roadway around the scene of the crash for about 30 minutes early this morning caused significant delays in the area.
