Another reminder TO SLOW DOWN. "On Tuesday, October 04, 2016, at approximately 12:47 AM, Marin CHP officers were dispatched to a call of a vehicle collision on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, west of Shadow Creek Court, just outside of Fairfax. The reporting party had not seen the collision occur but had heard a very loud crash nearby.
Emergency personnel from the Marin CHP Office, Marin County Sheriff’s Office, and Ross Valley Fire Department responded to the scene and located a dark colored 2010 BMW M5 that had collided head on with a large tree on the right shoulder of westbound Sir Francis Drake Boulevard. The male driver, and sole occupant of the vehicle, was located in the driver seat of the BMW and was unresponsive upon our arrival. The driver was subsequently pronounced deceased by paramedics on scene.
Our preliminary investigation indicates that the vehicle was traveling westbound on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard at a very high rate of speed when the driver failed to negotiate a left curve in the roadway. The vehicle left the roadway and collided with a large tree on the right shoulder which caused major damage to the vehicle.
