by ECT

On December 3rd at approximately 3:16 pm, Antioch Police Officers were dispatched to the intersection of Buchanan Rd and Del Oro Cir for a single vehicle collision. Officers arrived on scene and located a vehicle that had left the roadway and collided with a tree.

Contra Costa Firefighters arrived on scene and had to extricate the driver from the vehicle.

According to radio traffic, a medical helicopter was requested, however, it was REACH 17 who had a 32-minute response time as of 3:28 pm. Shortly after, they indicated due to weather, they were declining to fly.

By 3:35 pm, Contra Costa County Fire extricated the driver and with two firefighters joining AMR in the rig, the patient was ground transported to a local trauma center with major injures.

Antioch Police stated that their preliminary investigation indicates that the victim was traveling W/B on Buchanan Rd when he lost control of his vehicle at a slight bend in road. The victim’s vehicle left the roadway and collided with a large tree. Speed and inclement weather appear to be factors in this collision. It is not known at this time if alcohol was a factor.

As of 6:11 pm Thursday, the condition of the driver was not known.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision is encouraged to contact the Antioch Police Department at (925) 778-2441.

What is it with these moron tween drivers? Why do they think they’re a sideshow performer in Oakland? Pathetic morons who are only in it for themselves. Lazy, selfish, dumb, poor grammar, arrogant, lawlessnes. What kind of person do these characteristics describe?

Wow, you are pretty talented. You can tell they are a teen and a sideshow performer from a picture? You can tell they are lazy, dumb, and have poor grammer? AMAZING. I wish I could tell all that from a picture. .

Well Sean I can tell you can’t read. I wrote tween not teen. And because of your keen observation, tween is slang for twenties / teenager, which was stated in the article. You’re welcome. Have a good day.

Next time read the article instead of just looking at the picture 🙂

I’ll have you know he was none of those things and has a family that is going through a tough time, just like he is. So it’s greatly appreciated that you keep those irrelevant comments to yourself.

Have sone respect Sean. I knew the guy. Good friend of mine. He is not a moron tween driver, nor he was a sideshow performer. He is in a coma and they dont know if he will make it. Stop your bullsh*t nonsense and pray he is ok.
