Press Release: June 18, 2022 Fatal Traffic Collision

On June 18, 2022, at about 9:08 a.m., Fremont Police Dispatch received numerous calls regarding a multi-vehicle collision on Paseo Padre Parkway near Puttenham Way.  The reporting party indicated one vehicle collided with a tree.  Within minutes, officers arrived on the scene and located four vehicles. 
Based on the preliminary investigation, two vehicles, a Honda Civic and a Dodge Charger, were traveling nearly side-by-side northbound on Paseo Padre Parkway prior to the collision.  One vehicle swerved, causing the other vehicle to also swerve.  Both vehicles lost control and the Dodge Charger struck a tree on the raised center median.  The Honda Civic crossed the center median and collided with two other vehicles traveling in the southbound direction on Paseo Padre Parkway before coming to rest.
The driver of the Dodge Charger that struck the tree, a 74-year-old Hayward resident, was immediately provided emergency medical attention by responding officers.  Unfortunately, the driver was pronounced deceased at the scene.  No other person involved in the collision suffered any significant injuries. 
Drug or alcohol impairment does not appear to be a factor at this time.
This incident remains an active and ongoing investigation by the Fremont Police Traffic Unit and we are asking for assistance from the public.  If anyone may have witnessed this collision, please contact Officer Alex Gregory - [email protected] or 510-790-6772 or Officer Jacob Shannon  - [email protected] or (510) 790-6765.
