An 81-year-old Hercules man was killed in a two-car, rollover accident on Taylor Blvd. in Lafayette Thursday afternoon.
A spokesman for the Contra Costa County Coroner’s office identified the man as Dongwhan Oh. The crash, reported at around 2:55 p.m. and involving two trucks on Taylor at Withers Ave., turned already slow traffic attempting to maneuver around working grass fires in
Moraga and Clayton into a parking lot as local police and California Highway Patrol officers attempted to sort out events leading up to the crash.
Officers said Oh was driving a 1967 pickup truck going northbound on Taylor and was attempting to turn west onto Withers when he collided with a 2006 Dodge pickup driven by a 19-year-old Pleasant Hill man who was traveling south on Taylor and was turning onto Withers.
