San Mateo driver crashes, dies after shooting

A San Mateo man killed while driving on U.S. Highway 101 in Burlingame late Sunday night was likely shot once before crashing into a drainage ditch, Burlingame police Sgt. Jim Ford said today.

Londell Wilson, 25, was shot once in the upper torso while driving northbound on U.S. Highway 101 at around 11:15 p.m., according to Ford.

Wilson's silver 1990 Honda then crashed and landed in a ditch north of the Broadway overpass, Ford said. He was pronounced dead shortly after the crash.

The incident is being investigated as a homicide, but no suspects have been identified or arrested, Ford confirmed.

Wilson was reportedly shot before losing control of the Honda, crashing into a guardrail and then flipping over, according to the California Highway Patrol.

“We're researching that theory right now,” Ford said. “It looks like he was shot before the accident.”

According to Ford, Wilson was the only occupant of the Honda, which was significantly damaged from the collision, he said. Crime lab investigators are examining the Honda today to try to determine if any other bullets struck the vehicle, he said.

Police are continuing to interview witnesses to the crash, Ford said.

Anyone who saw the crash is asked to contact the Burlingame police investigations bureau at (650) 777-4100.
