A second person has died due to a fatal crash caused by a wrong-way driver on southbound Interstate Highway 280 near Palo Alto that occurred on Sept. 11.

San Jose resident Krisha Caraballos, 20, died this morning, according to the Santa Clara County Medical Examiner's Office.

Caraballos was the second person to die as the result of a two-vehicle crash on southbound Interstate Highway 280 at Page Mill Road that occurred just before 1 a.m. on Sept. 11.
