Highway 84 Reopened After Fatal Collision

CHP officials say one person was killed in the crash but the identity has not yet been released.

All lanes of westbound state Highway 84 are blocked following a fatal crash in Alameda County this evening, the California Highway Patrol said.

The collision was reported at about 5:45 p.m. just east of  Interstate Highway 680 near Sunol. A Sigalert was issued shortly after 6 p.m., according to the CHP. 

At least one person died in the crash and the cause remains under  investigation.
Motorists should expect delays and use alternate routes, the CHP said.

With all of the focus on BART, many people may not know that the Measure B vote in November includes several more transportation projects, including $132 million for widening 84 to 680.

If you think 84 is bad now, you should have seen it in the 60's. It seemed like there was a fatality at least once a week. It had many sharp turns, was narrower, and people drove too fast even then. And very few people wore seatbelts back then. They were not even standard equipment back then. Much improved since then, but they will never be able to idiot-proof any road. As long as there are cell phones and stereos, cigarettes and fast food, and people who drive while under the influence or fatigued, there will be accidents. People are born idiots - they never believe it will happen to them.
