San Bruno Man Dies in Solo Crash on I-280

The accident happened on I-280 near the interstate Highway 380 connector in San Bruno when the man's car crashed into a concrete divider.

The California Highway Patrol is releasing more information about a car crash that killed a driver on Interstate 280 in San Bruno late Saturday night.

The driver has been identified only as a 51-year-old San Bruno man, according to the CHP. His name is being withheld pending notification of relatives.

Just after 11 p.m., the man was heading north on I-280 near the interstate Highway 380 connector in San Bruno when his Mercedes smashed into the concrete wall on the east side of the roadway, according to the CHP.

The force of the crash sent the car into a guardrail, across four lanes of traffic and into the highway's center divider. The car came to rest in the roadway's center median, according to the CHP.

Emergency responders said the man was unresponsive, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators are trying to determine whether the man died solely due to injuries suffered in the crash or for medical reasons.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

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.

Its sad to state but apparently the person who passed away in the accident was Issac Mejia, the owner of Don Pico's Taqueria in San Bruno. He was a well known fixture in the community who participated in many volunteer events. According to certain sources, he suffered a heart attack while driving home. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

I had the pleasure of working closely with Isaac during my term as President of the San Bruno Chamber of Commerce. He was always full of great ideas to improve the community as well as ways to bring us all closer. He was always willing to volunteer food and time for countless charitable events. My heart goes out to his lovely wife and his daughter (who were the light loves of his life). ...Losing Bob Marshall, Sr. earlier this year and now Isaac, a very sad time for San Bruno. It's truly devastating. Laura Baughman

I have known Isaac for years as my husband was a member of the Burlingame Lions Club and also through my work where once a year I brought a student from Burlingame High School to compete for the speech contest. He was always so personable and made the evening so much fun for all of us. He always had such an infectious smile on his face and seemed to appreciate life. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Beth Pascal

There are not enough words to use to express how we feel about this terrible loss; may the family receive the calmness that only He can bring you at a time like this; try to remember who Isaac was and what he stood for; it will ease the pain. Our love to all of you as he was our friend and we frequented the restaurant. Ron & Dinah Roberts

Bev and Kent Flinn We recently relocated back to San Bruno and visited Don Picos. The last time we had seen Issac he was a young boy. Now all grown up he welcomed us back with that BIG great smile of his. To Issac and Linda and the rest of your family; we are heart broken with you. In our Prayers, Kent and Bev Flinn
