Lafayette, CA –  One Injured in Car Accident on Highway 24 near Mount Diablo Blvd

Lafayette, CA (March 14, 2023) – A crash on Sunday, March 12, sent one person to a hospital, where they were treated for injuries.

Just after 710 p.m., the California Highway Patrol troopers were notified that an automobile accident involving two vehicles occurred in the Lafayette area that required assistance.

Authorities arrived at the scene and located a brown Buick and a gray Toyota Tacoma blocking the eastbound lanes of Highway 24. Authorities immediately closed off the roadway just east of Mount Diablo Boulevard.

Firefighters and troopers went to work on removing the damaged vehicles. The vehicles were found blocking lanes three and four, prompting tow trucks to arrive at the scene to remove them.

One person was pinned inside of their vehicle and had to be extricated. The victim was injured as a result of the crash.

At this time, California Highway Patrol is investigating the collision.

In addition, many accidents take place as a result of drivers who fail to yield to others, run stop signs at intersections, and pass through stop signs.
