The accident happened around 5:00 am on the northbound side of the 880 Freeway near 5th Street. A white box truck became disabled on the shoulders and put on its blinking hazard lights, but a black BMW reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed careened off the freeway and into the box truck. The BMW then spun back onto the freeway and was struck by a Ford F-250 pickup truck.
Two people in the back seat of the BMW, a man and a child, were tragically pronounced dead after the accident. The driver, a female passenger, and another child were all rushed to a hospital in unknown condition. The child that was killed was not in a car seat at the time of the accident, according to initial reports. The investigation is ongoing at this time to determine cause and liability.
