SAN JOSE -- One person suffered life-threatening injuries and another was seriously hurt early Thursday in a what police say was a possible alcohol-related two-car crash in South San Jose.
Initially, police reported the driver of a Chevy Suburban died, but they later said that driver was in a hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The other driver, who suffered serious injuries and was also taken to a hospital, will be arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and possibly other charges related to the Chevy driver's injuries, police said.
The collision between the Chevy Suburban and a Honda CRV was reported around 12:05 a.m. near Almaden Expressway and Coleman Avenue, San Jose police said.
The driver of the Honda was traveling eastbound on Coleman and the Chevy was going northbound on Almaden Expressway when they collided, according to police Sgt. Heather Randol.
It is not known which vehicle ran a red light.
Traffic investigators cordoned off traffic in multiple directions, causing congestion in the area. Police said there were initial signs that "alcohol influence is suspected in this collision."
