A little more than a week after a car rolled off eastbound Highway 24 – landing on a dirt access road near 2nd Street and injuring two people – a virtually identical crash happened in much the same place in much the same way early Sunday.
Emergency crews converged on the area of 2nd and Mt. Diablo in Lafayette at 12:13 a.m. after neighbors in the area reported the sound of a car “coming off” eastbound Highway 24 followed by the sound of “people screaming” in the area of 1028 2nd Street.
Firefighters worked to free a person believed to have been critically injured and transported that person to the hospital. Two people were injured in the same location in almost the same way June 4.
There was no immediate word on the condition of the driver or on how the crash occurred although it was reportedly witnessed by at least one other motorist.
