One Dead In Fiery Concord Crash Monday


One person was killed after their vehicle ran off the side of northbound I680 north of the Concord Avenue West onramp Monday – the vehicle bursting into flames with the driver still inside.

The crash was reported by a passing truck driver at approximately 4:28 a.m., the driver telling police the car had been weaving and swerving prior to running off the highway and into a ditch.

The vehicle, a Toyota Prius, was occupied by the lone operator. Investigators said the car was traveling north when it left the roadway, colliding with a tree. The Toyota sustained major damage as a result of the collision and caught fire, according to the CHP.

The driver was not identified pending notification of relatives.

    We need to count each and every day as a gift and a good thing.

    • Agreed, Greg, and we certainly wouldn’t rule out some sort of medical event precipitating this crash. Something that can only be determined medically, of course. And, believe us, we take your advice on treating each day as a gift…
