Driver Killed, Passenger Injured in HWY 880 Crash

OAKLAND (BCN) — Two lanes of southbound Interstate Highway 880 in Oakland have reopened after a crash between a Honda Civic and big-rig killed one person and left another injured Tuesday night, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The accident involving a big-rig and red Honda Civic on southbound Highway 880 north of 16th Avenue was reported shortly after 9 p.m., CHP spokesman Officer Sean Wilkenfeld said.

In the Honda the female driver was killed and a male passenger was transported to a hospital for major injuries, Wilkenfeld said.

The driver of the big-rig stopped at the scene and was cooperative with officers, according to Wilkenfeld.

Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be factors in the collision, he said.

The Alameda County coroner’s bureau was called to the scene.

A Sig-alert was issued at 9:22 p.m. and the lanes reopened around 10:40 p.m., according to the CHP.
