On December 19th, 2015, a fatal vehicle vs pedestrian collision occurred at Sand Hill Rd and Santa Cruz Ave.

On December 19th, 2015, at approximately 6:45 AM, the Menlo Park Police Department, Menlo Park Fire District and San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office responded to the intersection of Sand Hill Road and Santa Cruz Avenue on a report of a vehicle vs. pedestrian crash. Upon arrival, emergency personnel immediately began to provide medical aid to a male subject found lying in the roadway just east of the intersection. The subject was ultimately pronounced deceased at the scene.

Due to the complexity of this type of investigation, Sand Hill Road between Santa Cruz Avenue and Oak Avenue had to be closed for several hours.
