PITTSBURG, CA – 2 adults and 3 children die in fatal crash early Thursday morning in Contra Costa County near Pittsburg, CA.

CHP was alerted to a driver heading the wrong way on Highway 4 around 12:10 am. The driver was in a Hyundai Elantra traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes.

The Hyundai driver continued along Highway 4 on the wrong side when they collided head on into a Ford Flex going westbound west of Loveridge Road.

According to CHP officials, “Both vehicles sustained major damage and came to rest within the westbound lanes” said in a news release.

The driver of the Ford was reported dead at the scene; no passengers were in this vehicle. The driver of the Hyundai was accompanied by 3 children all of whom were pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigation is ongoing so it is uncertain whether drugs and/or alcohol were a factor.

Westbound Highway 4 was temporarily closed following the incident and has opened again at 4 a.m.

Anyone who may have witnessed or has knowledge of the incident is urged to call Contra Costa CHP in Martinez at (925) 646-4980.
