UC Berkeley student dies in car accident on San Mateo Bridge


Last week, UC Berkeley student Jose Felix Mayen died in a car accident on the San Mateo Bridge, according to a report from InMenlo.com.

According to the report, Mayen, 23, was on his way to school when he stopped on the side of the San Mateo Bridge after he discovered he had a flat tire. His car was then struck by a speeding car.

A community group recently started a page on the website GiveForward.com to help pay for his memorial and burial. The group raised about $8,005 of its $15,000 goal as of early Tuesday evening.
