Three die in crash-filled weekend

A brutal weekend on San Mateo County roadways left three people dead and three more injured during three separate crashes, including two head-on collisions, authorities said.

The crashes took place on state Highway 1 in an unincorporated part of southern San Mateo County near Pescadero; on Interstate 380 in San Bruno; and near downtown San Bruno, all between 4:30 and 11 p.m. Saturday, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The first crash, on Highway 1 by New Year’s Creek Road southwest of San Jose, involved a 1996 Honda Accord, a Toyota Matrix and two other vehicles, all of which overturned, according to the CHP.

Two of the cars collided head on, and Santiago Navor, 21, of Pescadero, who was in the Honda, and Steven Wolkoff, 30, of San Francisco, a passenger in the Toyota, died at the scene, according to authorities.

One more person involved in the crash was taken to Stanford Medical Center with unknown injuries, CHP Officer Peter Van Eckhardt said. A second, two-car crash involving only property damage happened in the same area shortly after, he said.

At 11 that evening, a 2005 Ford collided head-on with a 2008 Volkswagen on eastbound Interstate 380 by El Camino Real in San Bruno, according to the CHP. A pickup truck involved in the crash “flipped over a couple of times,” Van Eckhardt said.

The driver of the Volkswagen, Dekeisha Skaggs, 25, of Daly City, died at the scene and the Ford driver, a 28-year-old San Bruno man, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with major injuries, according to the CHP. Both drivers were wearing their safety belts.

Between the two fatal crashes, a motorcyclist involved in a pursuit with CHP was injured after crashing on San Mateo and Sylvan avenues in downtown San Bruno at 8 p.m.
