Update: Lanes Reopened On Interstate 580 After Accident

Multi-car collision happened in westbound lanes near Fallon Road

The California Highway Patrol has reopened two westbound lanes on Interstate 580 in the Tri-Valley that were closed this afternoon due to a multi-car crash.

The accident wreckage was cleared and the lanes were reopened at 4:32 p.m. The accident happened at 3:05 p.m. just west of Fallon Road.

The CHP's log reports a white Toyota and a black Ford SUV were involved.

CHP Officer Eric Anderson said one person was injured. The extent of the injuries isn't known.

The accident has created slow traffic through that busy highway corridor on a night where the weather was already expected to create traffic headlines.

Heavy rain is predicted in the Bay Area this evening, lasting until about midnight.

Y don't all of you guys take a moment and pray for that poor girl who lost her life in a crash on a Friday night instead of pointing out each others mistakes n grammar, be a real human being n be sad on the loss of that family, I pray that her soul rest in peace n may God give her family strength to cope with this pain, Amin!!!!

Fyi to carrie the black suv did not loose control.the white car somehow turned sideways towards traffic causing the black suv to hit it.as you can tell by the smashed front end of the black car and smashed driver side of the white car.someone close to me was the driver of the black suv so I know how devestated she is.our thoughts and prayers go out to the poor girl and the loss her family has suffered.

C.P thank you for the clarification and for being a really good friend... Everyone ... in the bigger scheme of things regardless of race, religion, gender, or details etc.... its all insignificant when you think of the loss here... Someone's daughter is no longer here, a sister, friend, cousin, co worker... A beautiful life gone... who cares about fault or simple details... Its devastating to think about the heartache that will come for all involved. This is a life changing event for everyone. In an instant life can be taken from us... why? what is the purpose of this loss? CP your friend is lucky to have you... Everyone reading this today... take a minute and realize the anguish and guilt that the others may be enduring.. Self reflect for a minute or two and put yourself in the families shoes, Aryel's, or even the other driver. No one wants to go through this devastating pain or think about the what if's .. I know for a fact that there are wishes being made of a different outcome... for the family, the other driver... I know that after self reflecting I will tell me daughter "I love you" everyday and hug her tight every chance I have... My heart hurts and aches's badly for the Amin Family loss .... Everyone.. tomorrow is not promised ... Go outside yourself and be nice... walk right... think of others and how what you do and say may impact them.. anyone could have been in the black suv... it just happened to CP's friend... she is a victim of an unfortunate accident...
