Antioch Car Accident Highway 4, August 19
2 Injured in Antioch Crash Near Contra Loma Boulevard
ANTIOCH (August 19, 2017) – Two people were taken to the hospital after their vehicle was involved in a traffic collision on Highway 4, according to East Bay Times.
At about 12:32 p.m. on Saturday, an eastbound small sedan veered off the highway and continued driving down the Contra Loma Boulevard off-ramp. Authorities learned the sedan driver apparently suffered an unspecified medical event and then lost control of the vehicle.
The small sedan ended up landing into a vacant lot next to a Kelly Moore Paints business after a series of collisions. Officials said the sedan drove through an intersection, jumped a sidewalk, and crashed through a chainlink fence before striking a utility box.

Medical crews arrived at the scene shortly after the crash and attended to a child who appeared injured. The young patient was transported by an air ambulance to a hospital for treatment of serious injuries, officials said.
Meanwhile, the driver of the small sedan was also airlifted to a medical facility in unknown condition.
It remained unclear how many people were inside the involved sedan but paramedics said all the occupants suffered serious injuries.
Investigators continue to work on determining the precise circumstances that led to the collision.
