Byron Highway at Bruns Road Shutdown After Vehicle vs. Semi Crash

by ECT

At 3:36 am Thursday, the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District was dispatched to a report of a semi-truck versus vehicle at Byron Highway near Bruns Road in Byron.

Upon arrival, Engine 59 located a semi-truck with power lines down along with another vehicle with heavy damage on its roof. Due to the lines down, they could not make access to the vehicle.  Units from San Joaquin County were requested to check on that vehicle.

A CHP helicopter who was in the air responded to the scene along with a medical helicopter who were attempting to self-land to check on the second vehicle.

PG&E was expected to be on scene by 5:00 am.

UPDATE – at least one person was airlifted to a local hospital.
According to Battalion Chief 5, three people were released on scene.

Now THIS is definitely not a morning commuter. And there is zero excuse for the Byron Highway mayhem. The only issue with Byron Highway, a la Vasco&Camino Pablo, is careless, inconsiderate, drivers
