Fatal Crash on Highway 4 in Hercules Ignites Grass Fire

 
HERCULES, CA (May 11, 2019) – A man was killed following a fiery crash early Saturday morning in Hercules.
 
The crash happened just after 2:00 a.m. on westbound Highway 4, just East of Willow Avenue exit.
 
A silver Ford Taurus veered off the highway and hit the metal guard rail. It then crashed into a metal utility pole, CHP officials said.
 
The force of the collision caused the Ford to overturn onto a grassy embankment, igniting a small fire, which was quickly extinguished, CHP officials said.
 
Medical personnel found the driver conscious but suffering from major injuries. He was trapped in the driver seat of the car. He was airlifted to John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek, where he was declared dead.
 
The victim was only identified as a 51-year-old Richmond resident. His name has been withheld by the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Coroners Office pending next of kin notification.
 
It is unknown whether alcohol or drugs were factors in the collision, which remains under investigation.
 
Anyone who witnessed the crash or the events leading to it are encouraged to contact Contra Costa CHP in Martinez at (925) 646-4980.
