Vehicle Hits Fire Truck, One Person Airlifted To Hospital

CONTRA COSTA CO. (BCN) — At least one person was transported to a hospital by helicopter after two crashes early Sunday morning, one involving a vehicle and Contra Costa County fire truck, on Interstate Highway 80 near Hercules, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Officers responded to the first crash in which a 2002 Nissan Pathfinder overturned on eastbound Interstate Highway 80 just east of Willow
Avenue around 1:10 a.m., CHP Officer Ron Simmons said.

While CHP officers and fire crews were responding to the first crash, a 2013 Ford Taurus crashed into a Contra Costa County fire truck at
about 1:55 a.m., according to Simmons.

The drivers of the Nissan and Ford both suffered minor injuries and one of them was airlifted to a hospital, he said. No one else was inside either car, Simmons said.

No other injuries were reported.
