Man dies in crash after speeding down Daly City street

DALY CITY (KRON) — A man died Saturday morning after he crashed while speeding down Mission Street near John Daly Boulevard in Daly City, police said.

A police officer tried to conduct a traffic stop on a speeding vehicle just before 4 a.m., Daly City police Sgt. Ron Harrison said. The vehicle didn’t stop, but continued going southbound on Mission, Harrison said.

Because the motorist was driving so fast, the officer didn’t chase him, Harrison said. The officer found the vehicle shortly afterward in the 7400 block of Mission Street, where it had become involved in a collision, according to Harrison.

The man who was driving the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene, Harrison said. It’s not certain what the vehicle hit, though there is a large center median the driver may have run into, according to Harrison.

Police are investigating the incident and anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Patrick Dolan at (650) 238-7962.
