Deadly Rollover Crash on I-80 in Rodeo, East Bay Area

Contra Costa County, Calif. (June 21, 2024) — A fatal rollover accident on the Interstate 80 Freeway happened Friday morning, at the Willow Avenue exit in Rodeo.

The two-vehicle collision occurred on the westbound I-80 at around 4:04 a.m. on June 21st in the East Bay area of Contra Costa County.

The 911 dispatch report was issued by the California Highway Patrol.

A man reportedly called 911 after a traffic accident, but operators heard a “loud crash sound in the background.” After that, the caller was no longer responding.

Police responded and located two vehicles with major damage. One was a silver Chrysler 300 sedan and the other was a silver Cadillac sedan. The Cadillac overturned onto its roof in the number three lane.

By 4:40 a.m., the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Department was on the scene. Police requested the freeway be closed down to allow a helicopter to land.

There were two people with major injuries including one who had lacerations to the head, face and left arm. Paramedics transported the person to Richmond Kaiser for further treatment.

Unfortunately, at least one person has died following the car accident on the 80 Freeway.

Tow trucks removed the damaged vehicles from the freeway. Also, police issued a SigAlert, but all lanes reopened by 5:27 a.m., the report said.

Finally, detectives are working on the case to determine fault for the collision.
