The California Highway Patrol is reporting the death at about 12:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 14, of a 17-year-old Woodside girl who, witnesses said, jumped from the Sand Hill Road overpass at Interstate 280 and was struck by a vehicle driving north on the highway.
The San Mateo County Coroner's Office has identified the girl as Shelby Lauren Drazan.
CHP officers were enroute to the scene after witnesses reported a girl standing on the guardrail of the bridge, Officer Art Montiel said.
Medics pronounced the girl dead at the scene.
The vehicle involved was a 2007 Toyota SUV driven by a Santa Clara resident.
Officers rerouted northbound traffic via the off- and on-ramps at Sand Hill and traffic was backed up to just south of Alpine Road, the CHP said. The freeway section was reopened to traffic at about 2:55 p.m., the CHP said.
The CHP is asking witnesses to contact Officer William Torr at 650-369-6261.
