Two people were injured, and one of them was arrested, after a two-vehicle collision tonight that snarled traffic on U.S. Highway 101 in and near Redwood City for hours, the California Highway Patrol said. The collision was reported about 7:50 p.m. when a Mazda MX-5 and a Hyundai Sonata sedan collided on northbound 101 near the Whipple Road interchange in Redwood City, said CHP Officer Dave Morey. Specifics about how the collision occurred are still being investigated, Morey said, but the Mazda ended up on its roof. The driver of the Mazda, a man whose name was not available tonight, suffered moderate injuries, and was taken to Stanford Medical Center for treatment. He also was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, Morey said. Two people were in the Hyundai. The adult driver suffered moderate injuries, Morey said, and a 6-year-old passenger in the back seat was not injured. The actions of both drivers are still under investigation, Morey said. After the accident, all northbound lanes of 101 were closed briefly, and three lanes remained closed until after 9 p.m.

in Community/Crime and

A 31-year-old man was shot multiple times in the parking lot of BevMo! Liquors at 1745 El Camino Real on Sunday night — apparently following a drug sale involving a large quantity of marijuana, police said.

Officers responded to the store about 7:45 p.m. and found the victim with multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to a nearby hospital with life threatening injuries. He is in critical but stable condition after undergoing life-saving surgery, police said.

“Sometime during the initial drug transaction, the suspects shot the victim several times,” police reported.

Four suspects fled the scene after the shooting in a black 4-door sedan, similar in size and shape to a Honda, police said.

All four suspects are still outstanding.

“This incident appears to be an isolated criminal incident between the victim and suspect,” police said, adding that persons with information about this case are encouraged to call Detective Joe O’Gorman at (650) 780-7147.
