Tracy Fatal Bus Accident Friday on the 580 East FreewayTesla Employee Bus Crashes Into Volkswagen Beetle in Tracy on I-580

Tracy (May 12, 2017)- According to CBS San Francisco, a deadly collision involving a tour bus was reported Friday morning on eastbound Interstate 580 near Grant Line Road.

Authorities reported the collision at 7:10 a.m. when a tour bus carrying 55 Tesla employees collided with the driver of a Volkswagen Bug.

Per CBS San Francisco, the driver of the Volkswagen Bug only being identified as an off-duty Alameda County Sheriff’s deputy sadly did not survive the collision and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Pictures shot from up above at an aerial view show the Volkswagen’s rear completely sliced and ruptured in half.

Meanwhile, the report indicated that the several Tesla employees indeed did suffer injuries requiring them to seek medical aid and be taken to a nearby medical center for assessment of unknown injuries.

Police officials interviewed the bus driver who did admit that the brightness of the sun hindered his ability to see the road likely forcing him to veer into the Volkswagen.

A conclusion has not been established at this time confirming the specific cause of the collision as California Highway Patrol officials will continue to look further into this incident and the investigation..

Per the report, majority of eastbound I-580 remained completely shut down for over five hours while police perused the scene and removed debris from off the freeway.
