I know we have members there, including a past raffle winner. Hopefully the other driver is OK.

One person was killed Saturday morning in a head-on collision between a sports car and a pickup truck on Highway 84 in Sunol, the California Highway Patrol said.

The crash was reported at 9:16 a.m. on the busy two-lane highway, west of Main Street in Sunol and a few miles south of Pleasanton.

CHP officers said a Dodge Viper and a truck were involved and that one person was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers did not immediately identify the victim.

The collision shut the roadway for more than an hour.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. Does anybody know if he was a member on the boards? I hate to hear this kind of news.

That *****. Otehr than mechanical failure, it could have been a lapse in concentration. Texting or making a call. Either way, pay attention.
