Fatal Collision Overnight Closes Highway 680

Two people died in the three-car collision on I680 at Crow Canyon Road.

From Bay City News Service:

Two people were killed in a three-car crash that sparked a car fire on Interstate Highway 680 in San Ramon, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The three-car collision was reported just after 1:20 a.m. on southbound Highway 680 at the Crow Canyon Road off-ramp, according to the CHP.

One of the vehicles involved started leaking gas after the crash and one car caught fire. Multiple passengers appeared to be trapped in the vehicle that caught fire, according to the CHP.

The CHP issued a Sig-alert at 1:36 a.m. and shut down the roadway at the scene of the crash.

The slow lane on southbound Highway 680 has since reopened.

Patch will have update this story when more information becomes available.

I am the Momma of the young man in the Maxima. I am so sorry for the family that is suffering from this fatal accident as well as all of us that are devasted from the loss of Brandon, just about 19 years old. And to all that may have witnessed this horrible event my heart is broken and my eyes filled with tears when I think of the horror that you saw and its effect that I am certain it has left embedded within your mind. I can only pray for the loved ones survived and the people that this tragedy has stricken. Two people left us and there is only tears and heart piercing pain that I have for all. Sincerely~ with the Love of The Lord, Lisa
