UPDATE: 33-Year-Old Man Killed in Highway 101 Crash

Rohnert Park man appeared to have lost control of the vehicle and overturned just south of the Sonoma County line early Sunday morning.

A 33-year-old Rohnert Park man was killed in a crash on U.S. Highway 101 in Marin County Sunday morning, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The crash was reported on northbound Highway 101 just south of the Sonoma County line at about 7:45 a.m., CHP Officer Eric Hohmeister said.

For unknown reasons, the driver allowed his 1993 Honda Civic hatchback to drift into the dirt in the center divider, Hohmeister said. He apparently overcorrected the car, and swerved across two lanes of traffic toward the right-hand shoulder.

The man, who was wearing a seatbelt, crashed through a guardrail on the right shoulder and the vehicle landed in a ditch.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity was not released s of July 2.

Hohmeister said alcohol or drugs did not appear to be a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation. No other vehicles were involved, according to the CHP.

Hey WENDY...how does it feel knowing that Jose's mother will read what you said and she will also see everyone else;s support and crucifixtion of you...You deserve it. you are a heartless monster.

From a Grieving Mom I hope the family ignores those bad comments that they may find on here. I lost a child a few years ago in a similar situation and area. People wrote bad things then like commenting on the issue of wearing a seatbelt when my child did wear one as the autopsy showed. No one knows the truth except the family. There will always be a..holes who have nothing better to do than create stress for those who are grieving. My heart goes out to the family. It is horrible and you will hurt but someday you will learn to live with it. You will never forget but somehow we learn to carry on for the ones we love. Bless you.

David: Condolences to you, your sister and to the gentleman’s family! I told myself I was not going to dignify this B_ tch’s attitude by even responding to her comment. However, I must absolutely say something. Not only that you insulted the folks from Petaluma, including Ms. Woolsey, but your utter lack of feeling for somebody who just perished from this accident was way over the top, Wendy Nelson. I wondered what planet in this entire universe kicked you out for your rudeness, arrogance and your 'C_nty' attitude. Too bad, you landed here on earth. How lucky we are earth-occupiers for having another one like you. I bet you're one of the many drivers that drive on our freeways and streets nowadays with a "get-out-of-my-way" attitude. Too bad you're not the one who died in that accident instead. One less sorry "a_s" like you won't make a difference to me. & I mean that. You betcha!
