Fiery I-680 Car Accident Leaves 2 Dead, Severely Injures 1

At least two people were killed while one casualty sustained serious injuries from a multiple car accident that caught fire along Interstate Highway 680 near San Ramon, California.

According to California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers, the three-car collision was reported at around 1:20 in the morning, along the southbound lane of Interstate Highway 680 at the Crow Canyon Road off ramp.

Witnesses said that a man in his speeding vehicle struck a BMW convertible that has two passengers inside. Due to the extreme impact of the collision, both cars subsequently hit a large forklift, which eventually struck a pick-up truck in a nearby Caltrans construction zone. 

At least one of the vehicles involved leaked its gas, which caught fire shortly after the incident. Additionally, two of the three passengers that were trapped inside the car that caught fire were pronounced dead at the scene while the other one was transported to a hospital with serious injuries.

Consequently, the incident shut down four lanes of the interstate overnight due to the incident.

Further reports claimed that a few hours later, another accident happened at the same area where the first incident occurred. Fortunately, the said accident only left one person with minor injury.

Over speeding is one of the most prevalent causes of car accidents, just like what happened to this tragic accident on Interstate 680. A Los Angeles injury attorney claims that such type of traffic law violation seems unstoppable since many motorists simply ignore the continuous reminders of the federal government regarding maximum speed limits in certain thoroughfares.

In this regard, you should keep in mind that if a driver has been reckless in driving, chances of car accident-related injuries and even deaths are likewise high.


  1. That is what I exactly advise my husband and children. Please, do not over speed as it leaves nothing behind. We should learn from these news that happen all around day. It doesn’t matter if you reach late at your desired place because it is at least better then “Never”.

  2. Yeah, what is a two-minutes late if chances of getting involve in a car accident is at stake when you over speed.

  3. Always be alert on the road and if feeling tired, park for a while and rest your eyes. If ever been on a car crash by the fault of others, then you are entitled for a car accident claim.

  4. Probably that is the best advice for impaired drivers. Also, avoid drinking and driving particularly now that holiday season is fast approaching and parties are everywhere. Observe your alcohol intake.
