Fatal Traffic Collision

On Wednesday, May 8, 2019 at about 9:05 a.m., a fatal traffic collision occurred at the intersection of Scott Boulevard and Jay Street. A Nissan Altima was stopped at the traffic signal on southbound Scott Boulevard at Jay Street when it was struck from behind by a GMC Acadia.

The force of the impact was so great that it thrust the Altima forward into the intersection and caused significant damage to its backend. Both drivers and a passenger from the Acadia were transported to a local hospital.

On Friday, May 10, 2019, the driver of the Altima succumbed to his injuries and died at the hospital. He’s being identified as a 29-year old male resident of Santa Clara. Our initial investigation shows that the driver of the Acadia suffered a medical emergency immediately before the collision.

Scott Boulevard, between San Tomas Expressway and Space Park Drive, was closed for several hours during our investigation. The roadway reopened at about 1:30 p.m.

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident is asked to contact Traffic Investigator Nick Cusimano at (408) 615- 4764.
