Crash leaves two seriously injured, lanes closed on University Avenue

Multiple lanes on University Avenue have been shut down

Lanes on University Avenue at Bayfront Expressway are closed until noon, Menlo Park police announced shortly before 8 a.m. on Wednesday (Nov. 20), following a crash that seriously injured two drivers.

Police said a preliminary investigation shows that one car, heading east, crossed the median into oncoming traffic in the westbound lane of University Avenue, and hit another car head-on.

The drivers, both women, were taken to Stanford Hospital for treatment of possibly life-threatening injuries, according to the report.

The collision remains under investigation, and the westbound lanes of traffic on University Avenue are closed indefinitely; one eastbound lane is shut down as well. Police ask drivers to take alternate routes.

Anyone with information about the accident may call investigators at 330-6300.
