Upon the arrival of emergency personnel and CHP officers, it was determined that a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado driven by an unidentified male, had left the roadway on the north side of HWY-4 westbound, traveled through the cyclone perimeter fence, and came to rest on its wheels on the frontage road (Arnold Drive).
The vehicle caught fire and was engulfed in flames. Subsequently, the solo unidentified male driver was pronounced deceased at the scene. The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Coroners Office will be handling the release of his identity once known.
