A driver is killed in a car crash Monday morning. 

According to Fremont Police Department, a two-vehicle collision occurred around 8:27 a.m. at the intersection of Niles Boulevard and Hillview Drive. 

First responders performed life-saving measures at the scene, however, the driver died. 

The victim was identified as a 53-year-old man from Modesto. The other driver involved in the crash is a 19-year-old man from Fremont. He was taken to a trauma center for non-life-threatening injuries. 

Police said alcohol or drugs might have been a factor in this crash.

Preliminary investigation reveals Vehicle 1 (driver from Fremont) was going southbound on Niles Boulevard, approaching Hillview Drive. Vehicle 2 (driver from Modesto) was then going eastbound and making a left turn onto Niles Boulevard. 

The front of Vehicle 1 then crashed into the driver’s side of Vehicle 2 as both cars collided with an unoccupied parked car. Vehicle 1 was then on top of the east curb line, and Vehicle 2 stopped at a nearby residence, causing minor damage to the home.

The drivers weren’t identified by the police and the investigation continues.
