(KRON)—Saturday’s storm hit the Bay Area at mid-morning. Heavy rains pelted the East Bay hills accompanied with high winds that had trees swaying.
Rain slicked roads and poor visibility didn’t slow motorists on Highway 24, but traffic on Highway 580 in Pleasanton was stopped when a box truck spun out of control before noon with its rear wheels ending up on the barrier after crashing into the fence next to the BART tracks.
BART workers had to shut off power to the track before heavy duty wrecking trucks could begin lifting the vehicle off the barrier.
As many as five cars were involved and three victims were transported to local hospitals.
The rains didn’t deter football fans at Memorial Stadium as they bundled up in rain gear when they arrived for the big game between Cal and Stanford.
