One Killed, One Injured in Richmond Alleged DUI Crash on 80 Freeway

 
RICHMOND, CA (June 9, 2019) – One person suffered fatal injuries following a suspected DUI accident in Richmond on Saturday night, June 8.
 
The crash happened at about 5:12 p.m. on eastbound 80 Freeway just west of Central Avenue. A grey Nissan Sentra moving in and out of traffic sideswiped a white Mercedes SUV. Then the Nissan driver lost control of the vehicle causing it to overturn. The impact ejected two passengers onto the highway, according to the CHP.
 
One passenger died at the scene while the other sustained major injuries. Paramedics airlifted the injured passenger to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek. The name of the deceased passenger was not immediately available, a coroner’s office spokesperson stated. The Mercedes driver was not hurt.
 
Officers arrested the driver of the Nissan for felony driving under the influence.
 
Authorities shut down all the highway’s eastbound lanes for about 45 minutes. Traffic moved in one lane at around 6:09 p.m. Other lanes reopened later.


During this moment of grief, we would like to extend our sincere sympathies and thoughts of comfort to the family and friends of the victim.
