By Lieutenant Don LaDue, Field Services Bureau Commander, Antioch Police Department

On Thursday, December 3rd, 2015 at approximately 3:16 PM, Antioch Police Officers were dispatched to the intersection of Buchanan Road and Del Oro Circle for a single vehicle collision.  Officers arrived on scene and located a vehicle that had left the roadway and collided with a tree.

Contra Costa Firefighters arrived on scene and had to extricate the driver from the vehicle.  The driver, and sole vehicle occupant, was transported to a local trauma center with major injuries.

Our preliminary investigation indicates that the victim was traveling W/B on Buchanan Rd when he lost control of his vehicle at a slight bend in road.  The victim’s vehicle left the roadway and collided with a large tree.  Speed and inclement weather appear to be factors in this collision. It is not known at this time if alcohol was a factor.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision is encouraged to contact the Antioch Police Department at (925) 778-2441.
