Man killed in solo crash on Highway 101 Sunday identified

A man killed when his SUV flipped on U.S. Highway 101 in San Francisco on Sunday morning was identified Monday as 26-year-old San Francisco resident Douglas Maderos, according to The City’s Medical Examiner’s Office.

Maderos was driving a 1999 Toyota 4Runner south on Highway 101 just after 4 a.m. when he hit the center divider just south of the Cesar Chavez Street exit, CHP Officer Vu Williams said.

The SUV flipped and landed on its wheels, blocking two lanes of the highway. Maderos was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the 4Runner, Williams said.

He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital but died from his injuries a short time later. No one else was in the car with him when he crashed, according to the CHP.

Investigators are still looking into what caused Maderos to hit the center divider. Whether drugs or alcohol were a factor will be determined by the medical examiner’s office, Williams said.

The crash caused lane closures on the highway for more than an hour.
