An 86-year-old Burlingame woman was killed this morning when the car she was riding in rear-ended another car at a stoplight, police said.
The crash occurred around 9:45 a.m. on El Camino Real at Trousdale Drive, according to Burlingame police Sgt. Don Shepley.
A BMW driven by an 82-year-old Hillsborough woman was stopped at a red light in the left lane of El Camino Real when it was rear-ended by a northbound Mercedes in the same lane.
The Mercedes' passenger, an 86-year-old Burlingame woman, was not wearing a seat belt and was killed in the crash, Shepley said. Her identity has not yet been released pending the notification of her family.
The driver of the Mercedes, a 90-year-old Burlingame woman, was taken to a hospital for observation. The BMW's driver was not hurt, Shepley said.
He said the driver of the Mercedes appears to have been at fault, but the accident remains under investigation.
