A medical helicopter was requested after the crew found the crew member had sustained injury, however, he was ultimately transported by ground to a local hospital.

Contra Costa County Fire Protection District personnel requested County Hazmat to the scene as diesel was leaking into a storm drain.

A portion of W. Cypress Road is anticipated to be shut down for several hours and Oakley Police Department officers are on scene providing traffic control.

Fire Marshal Steve Aubert told East County Today the tender was responding to a vegetation fire on E Cypress Road near Bethel Island Road in Oakley at the time of the crash.
