MENLO PARK, CA (February 17, 2021) — One of the three teens involved in a major rollover crash on Saturday, January 16 has died from his injuries.
16-year-old Michael Enright of Portola Valley, a sophomore at Menlo High School, passed away from injuries he suffered in the accident.
According to a police report, an SUV occupied by three teenagers rolled over at Valparaiso Avenue and Altschul Avenue. Soon after, Menlo Park fire district engines arrived on scene at 1:00 p.m. After that, officials found two boys trapped inside the SUV and a girl who ejected from the car, lying in the street near a sheared-off light pole.
