A car crash in Pleasanton had briefly shut down the highway while emergency crews were trying to tend to the accident. I-580 was shut down because of a crash that saw one car completely smashed, and there were authorities on the scene that were trying to take care of things. The names of the people killed in the accident have not been released, but the crash was bad enough to have the highway closed down for nearly four hours. Anyone in the area who saw the crash could see the severity of the damage, and it is important for people to respect the privacy of the families of those killed.
That particular stretch of I-580 in Pleasanton is a spot on the highways of California that has been very bad for drivers. Any driver who wants to avoid this area should do so to make sure they are not in a similar accident in the future.
What is known is that the crash involved six cars and a tractor trailer. A crash of this size is something to be taken seriously, and all drivers have been cautioned by the CHP to be vigilant when they are near large trucks. Large trucks do not handle like cars, and it is possible that an oversight caused the crash that morning.
