The California Highway Patrol is reporting that a 59-year-old Antioch man has died following a crash on westbound Highway just west of I-680 Tuesday night.
According to CHP, they responded to a two vehicle crash where it was determined that a black Ford F-150, driven by a solo 59-year-old male from Antioch, had overturned in the roadway and was then struck by an oncoming white Ford F-150, causing major damage. The adult male driver of the white Ford F-150 (from San Leandro) sustained minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital.
The Antioch man, the driver of the black Ford F-150, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene by medical personnel. The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Coroners Office will be handling the release of his identity.
