A Palo Alto man has been identified as the victim of a fatal crash on the Dumbarton Bridge on Tuesday (June 14), according to the Alameda County coroner's bureau.
Terrence Abdullah, 43, was killed at about 3 p.m. in a two-vehicle crash that blocked two westbound lanes for 50 minutes.
Abdullah was driving his 1995 Chevy Corsica westbound in the No. 2 lane -- the second farthest to the left -- when the car became disabled and stopped, California Highway Patrol Officer Brian Watkins said.
The driver of a second vehicle, Roberto Lopez, 59, of Menlo Park, was traveling in the same lane westbound at an unknown speed when his 2000 Nissan Quest struck the rear of Abdullah's vehicle. For an unknown reason, he failed to slow down or stop before rear-ending Abdullah's vehicle, Watkins said.
Abdullah sustained fatal injuries; Lopez complained of chest pains and was taken by ambulance to Stanford University Medical Center. He has not been charged in the accident, Watkins said.
Abdullah was listed in an online profile as a owner of a small Midtown company, S&P Worldwide Management, LLC, also known as S&P Worldwide Communications.
