Car may have jumped curb before fatal accident on 101 in San Jose early Sunday

All lanes of northbound Highway 101 in San Jose have been reopened following a fatal collision early this morning that involved multiple vehicles, and authorities say an investigation into the accident is continuing.
According to the California Highway Patrol, an officer spotted cars in the lanes of northbound Highway 101 just north of the Oakland Road exit around 1:13 a.m. Sunday, shortly after a collision had occurred.
The preliminary investigation indicates that an Acura TL with two men inside may have jumped a curb on Oakland Road near the onramp to the highway, crashed onto the right shoulder of the highway, and finally came to rest between the number one and two lanes of 101.
A Nissan Pathfinder traveling on 101 northbound then crashed into the Acura while it was in the lanes, killing one of the men inside the Acura, though it wasn’t clear if it was the driver or the passenger.
Officer Henrik Bailey with the CHP said Sunday morning the man killed was a San Jose resident, but no other details were immediately available.
Bailey said after that collision, a white van traveling on the highway crashed into one of the vehicles already on the roadway, and then swerved and hit another red car.
No one was injured as a result of that collision, Bailey said, though the driver of the van was found to be under the influence of alcohol.
After the collision, the CHP had issued a Sig-alert, closing all northbound lanes south of the Oakland Road exit. All lanes reopened around 6 a.m.
