Peninsula: Highway 101 tree collision injures one

A woman was airlifted to Stanford Hospital on Wednesday afternoon after a vehicle accident on northbound Highway 101 near Whipple Avenue in Redwood City.

The woman, in her mid-50s, was driving a gold-colored Honda. She swerved to avoid hitting a white Cadillac and veered from the fast lane to the right shoulder, where her car struck a tree, said California Highway Patrol Officer Grace Castillo.

A toddler, who was secured in a child safety seat in the Honda, was not injured. Because the Cadillac driver left the scene, the CHP is asking any witnesses to call (650) 369-6261 to report what they saw.

Daly City

Habitat for Humanity project recommended for approval

The Planning Commission recommended Habitat for Humanity’s two-home project on Parkview Avenue for approval by the City Council.

The project would see two new below-market-rate, detached, single-family homes built on the southwest corner of Parkview Avenue and Miriam Street.

The site was formerly the Parkview Clubhouse, which was moved down the street several years ago after 65 years at 101 Parkview.

The council will vote on the Habitat for Humanity project Sept. 10, according to the Planning Department.

Rainfall exceeded 10 inches in parts of the Bay Area

On Sunday, California bore the brunt of what meteorologists referred to as a bomb cyclone and an atmospheric river, a convergence of storms that brought more than half a foot of rain to parts of the Bay Area, along with high winds, concerns about flash floods and the potential for heavy snow in the Sierra Nevada. Much of the Bay Area was under a flash flood watch on Sunday, with the National Weather Service warning of the potential for mudslides across the region. (NOAA via The New York Times)
