11-year-old killed in I-280 crash in Burlingame

An 11-year-old was killed Sunday morning in a crash on Interstate Highway 280 in Burlingame, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Officers responded around 12:55 a.m. to a report of pedestrians on the shoulder of northbound Interstate Highway 280, south of Trousdale Drive.

Officers said the pedestrians were the driver and a passenger of a black Chevy SUV that had driven off the roadway and down an embankment.

Officers said an 11-year-old passenger in the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene.

The SUV was traveling north on the highway when the driver apparently lost control, and the vehicle veered off the road and down the embankment, officers said.

The right area of the SUV crashed into a tree, killing the 11-year-old.

Officers said it appears everyone in the vehicle was wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.

The driver suffered major injuries, but the injuries were not life-threatening.

Other passengers in the crash were transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

Officers said it does not appear alcohol was involved in the crash.
