Coroner Identifies Keandre Allums, Michael Bernardo Killed in Berkeley Pedestrian Accident
BERKELEY, CA (September 14, 2021) – Michael Bernardo and Keandre Allums died in a pedestrian accident in Berkeley early Sunday morning, September 12.
The accident happened around 1:30 a.m. on eastbound 80 Freeway west of University Avenue. CHP officials said Bernardo and Allums were driving their vehicles when they collided for unknown reasons.
After the crash, the two drivers exited their vehicles to argue, along with a female passenger. As they were standing in lanes of traffic, a Mini Cooper that had swerved to avoid the crash struck the two men.
As a result, Bernado and Allums both suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene. Bernardo was a 46-year-old Hercules resident, while Allums was a 28-year-old resident of San Pablo, according to the Alameda County Coroner’s Bureau.
In addition, the female passenger was possibly hit by debris. As a result, she needed to be hospitalized.
The driver of the Mini Cooper remained on scene and cooperated with authorities.
Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation. Anyone with further information is encouraged to contact the Oakland CHP Office at (510) 457-2875.
