ANTIOCH, CA (April 21, 2018) – An elderly woman lost her life in a three-vehicle collision at the intersection of James Donlon Boulevard and Silverado Drive, on Sunday. She was later identified as 93-year-old Betty James, a resident of Clayton.

A Buick Regal sedan, driven by James, was heading northbound on Silverado Drive and pulled out onto James Donlon Boulevard. At the same time, a Ford 150 pickup entered the intersection from the east side.
