This morning at approximately 9:02 am, the California Highway Patrol Contra Costa Division, responded to a collision on eastbound San Pablo Dam Rd at La Colina Rd for a solo vehicle crash.
Emergency personnel found a 2017 Volkswagen sedan located against a metal pole in a parking lot just off San Pablo Dam Rd, with an unresponsive male driver. The driver, a 66 year old from El Sobrante, was transported to Kaiser hospital in Vallejo where he was pronounced deceased.
Preliminary investigation indicates that the male driver may have had a medical condition and possibly suffered a heart attack before veering off the roadway into the pole. The driver was the sole occupant and no other vehicles were involved.
Alcohol and/or drugs are not believed to be a factor in this collision but it is still under investigation.
