It was around 11 a.m. when the Alpine business man turned out his Saturn sedan on to Alpine Boulevard, near Bay Meadows Drive, before he was hit on the driver’s side of his automobile by the Ford Mustang, in the fatal car accident that cost him his life.
The 40-year-old Mustang driver, who was traveling below the speed limited at the time of the fatal automobile accident, complained of back pain, probably from a spinal cord injury, and was escorted to the hospital by an ambulance for medical treatment of his personal injury.
The man passed away at a nearby parking lot while waiting for a helicopter to take him to the hospital to treat his pain and suffering from the fatal automobile accident.
