San Leandro, CA (March 3, 2023) – On March 2, the California Highway Patrol troopers were called to provide assistance at a crash site on 880 Freeway.
Reports from authorities show that two vehicles collided on the northbound side of the freeway near Washington Avenue. The incident prompted officials to close off multiple lanes in the area as they worked to clear the scene near the off-ramp of Washington Avenue.
Traffic was redirected as emergency crews remained at the scene to provide assistance.
One person was injured in the accident and had to be transported to a local hospital by ambulance, where they underwent medical care for their injuries.
The California Highway Patrol troopers are actively investigating the crash.
Car Accidents in California
Every year, thousands of people lose their lives as a result of car crashes that occur in the state of California. Tens of thousands of other victims are left with serious injuries that affect their lives forever. In many instances, people are hurt as a result of driver negligence. Leading factors in crashes across our state include:
- Speeding motorists: Drivers who exceed the posted speed limit continue to cause harm. We see many people lose control of their vehicles while speeding and crash into others. Drivers who are traveling on curved road areas and in heavy traffic are more likely to cause serious accidents while speeding.
- Running red lights: When drivers run red lights at intersections, they are likely to crash into other vehicles. Regrettably, these accidents often result in rollovers that leave victims with devastating injuries.
- Failure to yield: When drivers fail to yield to other motorists sharing the road, they are likely to cause serious accidents. We see many accidents take place as a result of drivers who fail to yield at intersections while entering roadways from driveways and while merging onto highways.
