One Killed, One Injured In Multiple Crashes On I-580 in Oakland
(BANT) – One person was killed and another suffered major injuries early this morning in multiple collisions on Interstate Highway 580 in Oakland, according to the California Highway Patrol.
At about 4:30 a.m., the CHP received multiple calls about a four-car crash on westbound Highway 580 east of Harrison Street.
When officers arrived, they discovered one man under a car and another man lying in the roadway to the west of the crash site, according to the CHP.
Officers provided medical aid to the men prior to the arrival of paramedics, but the man who was found in the roadway to the west of the crash site died at the scene, CHP officials said.
The other man was taken to Highland Hospital in Oakland with major injuries.
The men were struck after what appears to have been “several collisions” in the area and both had gotten out of their cars prior to being hit, CHP officials said.
All lanes of westbound Highway 580 were closed until about 6:30 a.m. as a result of the crashes.
