A fatal crash has closed a lane of Interstate Highway 880 and a state Highway 237 off-ramp in Milpitas after a car crashed and burst into flames, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Around 10:50 a.m., a gold Toyota Corolla was traveling south on Highway 880 at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control and crashed into the right side shoulder just south of Highway 237. The car then burst into flames, CHP Officer DJ Sarabia said.
The driver was killed in the crash and has not yet been identified, but the car is registered to a resident of Milpitas, Sarabia said.
Sarabia said the right lane of I-880 was closed until shortly after noon.
The car fire has been put out and fire crews are no longer at the scene.
More information will be reported when it becomes available.
