Albany, CA (August 3, 2018) – The California Highway Patrol reported an unspecified number of people may have sustained injuries as the result of a two-vehicle collision that took place along the Interstate 580 Freeway, in the vicinity of Buchanan Street. Authorities first logged the incident at 1:13 PM in the afternoon on Thursday, August 2, 2018. At this time, no detailed information concerning the identities of the two drivers or additional people involved in the crash has been revealed.
CHP officers initially reported that a Prius and an unidentified truck had been traveling down 580 when, for indeterminate reasons, the two vehicles collided near Buchanan. First responders discovered oil had leaked across the highway and sent out an emergency message to the Coast Guard to prevent the substance from drifting into the surrounding bay waters.
As indicated earlier, officials have not specified if anyone was injured during the impact.
Presently, authorities are conducting an ongoing investigation into the possible cause of this unfortunate accident. As more evidence continues to surface, more information will be released to public sources.
