Authorities were notified of the collision at roughly 3:30 a.m. as a 23-year-old woman driving a Volkswagen Golf traveling northbound within the southbound lanes of I-280 triggering a major collision.

Inside the opposing vehicle was a 23-year-old Livermore woman inside a Chevy Aveo. The Aveo then careened into a BMW driven by a 29-yaer-old San Jose man.

The wreck incurred serious injuries to two motorists and moderate injuries to a third driver who was all rushed to trauma centers for their injuries. It was confirmed by police officials that one of the drivers sustained a broken leg.
