Driver Killed In Shoreline Accident
A San Francisco man was killed yesterday when his small foreign car crashed into a tree on Shoreline Highway between Bolinas and Olema.
The California Highway Patrol said Arne Arnesen, 39, was northbound about 2:30 p.m. when he apparently attempted to pass a pickup truck driven by James R. Scagliola, 26, of 18 Pleasant Lane, San Rafael.
A witness reported the small car began to sway, then skidded across the highway and into a tree.
The highway patrol said there was sand on the road, dumped earlier to melt ice, but did not know if the sand had contributed to the accident.
The fatality was the 42nd in Marin this year, compared to 32 at the same period last year.
