San Jose man, 27, identified as one of two killed in Sunol car crash

Fatal collision closed Hwy. 84 Sunday night

A San Jose man has been identified as one of the two people that died Sunday after a collision on state Highway 84 in Sunol.

The Alameda County Coroner's Office reported that Yu Jian Sun, 27, was pronounced dead at the scene of the three-car crash, which took place around 6:17 p.m.

A female passenger in Sun's car, also from San Jose, later died at Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley, but she has not yet been publicly identified pending notification of her family in China.

Four other people, including a 7-year-old girl, were injured in the crash, CHP officials said.

The two victims who died were both headed east in a green 2001 BWM 530i. At about 6:15 p.m., a 50-year-old Dublin man driving a black 2007 Toyota Corolla tried to make a left turn onto Vallecitos Road in front of their car, according to the CHP.

The Toyota hit the BMW and pushed it into the path of a green 2013 Infinity SUV. The BMW and Infinity collided head-on, CHP officials said.

The Toyota driver was also flown to Eden Medical Center with major injuries. The three Livermore residents in the Infinity, a 71-year-old man, a 68-year-old woman and a 7-year-old girl, were all taken to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center with minor injuries, according to the CHP.

The highway was closed for more than two hours as the CHP investigated the cause of the crash and fully reopened at about 10 p.m.

Investigators do not suspect that drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.
