CHP Update: HEAD ON FATALITY CRASH on SELLERS AVENUE
This evening at approximately 5:35pm, Contra Costa CHP was advised of a two vehicle head-on collision on Sellers Avenue, just south of Delta Road. Upon emergency personnel and CHP arrival, the male driver of a 2015 Acura sedan (16yrs old from Brentwood) was pronounced deceased at the scene by emergency personnel. His passenger (a 15yr old male) suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek. The other vehicle involved was a 2003 Ford pickup truck and the solo male driver (19yrs old from Discovery Bay) suffered serious injury and was also transported to John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek. The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Coroners Office will be handling the release of identity of the deceased male driver of the Acura.
In our initial investigation, it appears the male driver of the Acura was traveling southbound on Sellers Avenue, just south of Delta Road. For unknown reasons at this time, the driver of he Acura veered across the solid double yellow lines and into the northbound lane of Sellers, directly into the path of the oncoming Ford pickup truck, and a head-on collision occurred. Subsequently the driver of the Acura was killed, the passenger of the Acura suffered life-threatening injuries, and the driver of the Ford pickup truck suffered major injuries as well.
At this time it is unknown if alcohol or drugs were a factor in this collision but this incident is still under investigation. If anyone witnessed this collision or the events leading up to it and have not already spoken to CHP, please contact Contra Costa CHP in Martinez at (925) 646-4980. Thank you.
