A Freeway Service Patrol driver died Tuesday afternoon in a crash on southbound Interstate 280 in Woodside, a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol said.
The San Mateo County Coroner's Office identified the driver on Wednesday as Mark Anthony Alarcon, a 61-year-old Dublin resident.
Someone called the CHP at 3:40 p.m. on Tuesday to tell them about the crash between Farm Hill Boulevard and Edgewood Road, CHP Officer Art Montiel said.
A lumber truck was traveling south when it left the road and crashed into the FSP truck and Alarcon. FSP drivers help motorists during commute hours by providing gas, for example, to motorists who run out. Services are paid for by the state of California.
The driver of the lumber truck stayed at the scene and cooperated with the crash investigation. Montiel said it does not appear that the driver of the lumber truck was impaired by a substance such as alcohol.
