CASTRO VALLEY (BCN) – A Caltrans vehicle was carjacked by a man with a gun after an early-morning collision on Interstate Highway 580 in Castro Valley Saturday, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Around 5:25 a.m. a convoy of Cal-Trans vehicles was on its way to a sweeping detail on Interstate Highway 238 when a black BMW crashed into an
attenuator truck with its crash cushion lowered, according to the CHP.
Two attenuator trucks stopped after the collision. The driver of the BMW brandished a handgun, carjacked the Caltrans vehicle and fled west on
