Fatal Crash on Eastbound I-580 in Livermore Snarls Traffic in Both Directions

A fatal crash on eastbound Interstate 580 through Livermore early Thursday morning shut down lanes for a couple of hours and snarled traffic in both directions, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash involving multiple vehicles occurred at about 3:30 a.m. along I-580 near First Street, and left one person dead, the CHP said.

A speeding Ford Mustang rear-ended a pickup truck then slammed into the median barrier before hitting another vahicle, which collided with a fourth vehicle, the CHP said.

The driver of the Mustang died at the scene, police said. One other person was taken to a hospital with moderate injuries.

All eastbound lanes were blocked for about an hour, but some lanes reopened within an hour. The CHP estimated all lanes would be clear by about 6 a.m.

Westbound traffic also was slow through the area.
