The following is from the CHP Contra Costa:
On February 1, 2023 at around 4:17 am, CHP Contra Costa was advised of a three vehicle crash on westbound SR-4, east of Pine Street.
A Ford hatchback, with one occupant, was traveling on westbound SR-4, east of Pine Street, when it collided with the center divide.
This initial collision caused the Ford to become disabled in the lanes of traffic. A Lexus SUV, with one occupant, was traveling on westbound SR-4 and collided with the disabled Ford. Shortly after a Toyota SUV traveling on westbound SR-4, with one occupant, collided with the disabled Ford.
The driver of the Ford was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The driver of the Lexus and Toyota were not injured.
This crash is still under investigation.
If anyone witnessed it or the events leading up to it, please contact Contra Costa CHP in Martinez, (925) 646-4980
Nothing good happens at 4:00 AM. Likely intoxication or medical crises caused the Ford driver to lose control
of the vehicle. You gotta be alert for the other 2 drivers.
I leave for work at 3:45 in the morning. I’m usually traveling that area about that time. Does that mean I’m up to nothing good? Going to work is bad? People on here need to stop being so negative. That’s the problem with today’s society. How about just say I’m sorry for the victims and their family’s. RIP.
I work early in the morning as well. Most people driving at that hour are early commuters. Sometimes terrible things happen to good people.
Prayers for the families of the injured and deceased.
Absolutely true. Retired ALCO paramedic here. Nothing good happens after midnight.
Myopic and narrow minded assumptions made by PO’D
Work that what gos on
That section has three lanes and not at all “techical”. Weather this early morning was clear and the pavement dry.
Could of fallen asleep, had a medical issue, had a mechanical failure, or was otherwise distracted.
Drunk driving? Must have been a helluva night!
