In San Jose's first traffic fatality of the year, a 25-year-old woman was killed in a car accident this morning, according to police, when her car was struck by two others in foggy conditions on Curtner Avenue.
Emergency workers closed Curtner in both directions, from Meridian Avenue to Custer Drive, as they investigated the crash and cleared the roadway.
The accident happened around 7:30 a.m. when the woman at an intersection -- which does not have a traffic signal -- pulled her 1990s Honda Civic from Dumbarton Drive into eastbound traffic on Curtner, police said. She was struck by two vehicles: a Range Rover and a Honda Element. She was pronounced dead at Valley Medical center at 8:02 a.m.
As of this morning, police had not identified the dead woman.
Police said there was no immediate evidence that either the victim or drivers of the other vehicles were intoxicated.
