Chicago Business Leaders and Resident of Barrington Killed In Wrong-Way Crash In San Francisco

A driver was going the wrong way when she slammed into a minivan taxi cab carrying business leaders Judson Bergman and Mary Miller. CBS 2’s Dana Kozlov reports.

The California Highway Patrol and area firefighter/paramedics responded about 12:30 a.m. PT to a wrong-way head-on crash on US Highway 101 just north of Candlestick Point and south of Third Street in San Francisco, California. The crash killed four people — three in the taxi cab minivan and the wrong-way driver in a Volkswagen Cabrio.

The driver of the taxi was a 43-year-old man who lived in San Carlos. The taxi passengers were 62-year-old Judson Bergman of Barrington, Illinois and 57-year-old Mary Miller of Chicago. One of the passengers was ejected from the taxi, and CHP did not initially determine whether occupants were wearing seatbelts. Both vehicles were severely damaged.

The wrong-way driver has been identified as 34-year-old Emilie Ross from Hillsborough, California. Police have released only that she was an “impaired driver.”

Police received multiple 9-1-1 calls just before the crash reporting a wrong-way driver on northbound 101 near the 280 split.

The CHP says they are also investigating if the passengers in the cab were wearing their seats belts, since

CHP stated this is the 25th wrong-way collision in the Bay Area in 2019. Ten of the Bay Area crashes were fatal, and caused 19 deaths. Of the 25 wrong-way crashes, 18 involved DUI drivers. In 2018 there were 30 wrong-way collisions in Cook County.
