HERCULES (KRON) — At least one person suffered major injuries in a solo vehicle crash on eastbound state Highway 4 near Hercules Wednesday morning, according to
the California Highway Patrol.
The crash was reported shortly after 7 a.m. near the Franklin Canyon Road on-ramp to eastbound Highway 4.
A vehicle spun out and hit the guardrail, causing possibly major injuries to at least one person, CHP Officer Ron Simmons said.
Simmons said officers had initially planned to have a medical helicopter land at a nearby golf course, but instead had the driver taken by ambulance to a hospital after determining the injuries were considered minor.
The driver is expected to survive, according to officials.
All lanes were reopened by 8:30 a.m.
