CHP: Pittsburg Man Killed in SR-242 Crash

by ECT

The California Highway Patrol reports that a Pittsburg man was killed last night in a solo vehicle crash on SR-242 at Highway 4.

The crash occurred at approximately 11:30 pm where they say the 1994 Honda Civic had veered from the lanes of traffic of SR-242 northbound and collided with the concrete center divider. The driver then lost control of the vehicle as it tumbled over the center divider and down the center dirt embankment towards southbound SR-242.  The vehicle landed on its roof.

CHP says the driver, a 22-year-old male from Concord was restrained and sustained only minor injuries. However, an adult male from Pittsburg, who was not identified, was not properly restrained and was ejected from the vehicle onto the roadway of SR-242 and struck by a passing vehicle. He was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Alcohol and drugs are not considered a factor in this collision but it is still under investigation according to the CHP. Anyone who witnessed this crash or events leading up to it and have not yet spoken to CHP, please contact Contra Costa CHP in Martinez at (925) 646-4980
