1 dead in Martinez car crash

MARTINEZ (KRON) — One person is dead after a car crash in Martinez last night, according to California Highway Patrol.

The accident happened around 11:14 p.m. on eastbound Highway 4, just west of the Alhambra Avenue off-ramp. A black Dodge Charger was reportedly seen facing sideways between
the first and second lanes, CHP officers said.

Contra Costa County firefighters also came to the scene to investigate a possible gas leak.

Officers issued a Sig-alert around 11:33 p.m. when they closed the highway to all eastbound traffic, which was diverted at Alhambra Avenue. After clearing the crash, the Sig-alert was canceled and all lanes reopened at 12:48 a.m., CHP officers said.
