Redwood City man ID’d in fatal crash

A man who was found dead Tuesday morning after crashing his Mercedes-Benz into a dirt embankment in the unincorporated Pescadero area of San Mateo County has been identified as 49-year-old Jose Alfredo Peters of Redwood City, according to the county coroner’s office.

The crash was reported around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday on Pescadero Creek Road east of Stage Road.

Investigators believe Peters crashed his vehicle Monday night or early Tuesday morning. He appears to have been speeding east on Pescadero Creek Road when he lost control of the vehicle on a curve, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The vehicle rolled over, coming to rest on its roof, and Peters was ejected. His body was found roughly 30 feet away.

CHP officials said Peters was not wearing his seatbelt, and drugs or alcohol may have been factors in the crash.
