Oakland, California (June 27, 2018) – Local news sources reported that a man died as a result of a multi-vehicle traffic accident on the westbound lanes of Highway 24 near Broadway. The incident took place an unknown time on Wednesday, June 27, 2018. Authorities have not revealed detailed information concerning the identities of the drivers involved in the crash or if passengers had accompanied these individuals in the vehicles.
California Highway Patrol was unable to determine an exact layout of the crash. Based on the CHP report, a Honda Civic rear-ended a Chevy Tahoe before being sideswiped by an oncoming Toyota Camry on Highway 24.
Local news explained that the driver of the Tahoe sustained severe injuries after being ejected from his seat during the crash. Tragically, he succumbed to the trauma as a result.

For three hours after the incident, law enforcement left one lane of Highway 24 open to passing traffic and closed down the remaining lanes as part of a continuing investigation. As more evidence arises and the victims’ names are determined, more information will be released to the public.
We extend our deepest condolences and most heartfelt prayers to the family and friends of the deceased driver during this difficult time.
