Fatal Truck Accident Near Bridge in Santa Cruz County
CROCKETT, Calif. (May 25, 2018) — A 67-year-old Fairfield man is dead following a collision Friday morning between a big rig truck and a sedan on the eastbound Interstate 80 Freeway, just west of Pomona Street and the Alfred Zampa Memorial Bridge, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The crash took place about 3:55 a.m. in Contra Costa County. The driver of a vehicle reportedly crashed into the back of a maroon semi-tractor trailer truck as the vehicle slowed down for traffic ahead from an earlier collision. In that crash, a 29-year-old Hayward man driving a 2013 Volvo big rig truck hauling pineapples drifted off the road and crashed into the divider. The truck overturned in a fiery wreck and the man was pulled out of the cab by a bystander who witnessed it happen.
Our prayers and condolences go out to those affected by these two collisions.
