OAKLEY — Three people were hospitalized with major injuries early Tuesday after one vehicle T-boned another, a fire official said.
The crash happened around 5:10 a.m. on O’Hara Avenue at Laurel Road, Battalion Chief Jeff Burris of the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District said.
An ambulance taking a patient to the hospital for an unrelated emergency came upon the scene and saw one of the people involved in the vehicle crash lying in the roadway covered in blood, Burris said. That person suffered an injury that affected breathing and was rushed to Sutter Delta Medical Center to be stablized, before then being transported to a trauma center at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek.
A second injured person went by medical helicopter to the same trauma center, while a third person went by ambulance to Kaiser Permanente in Antioch.
The extent of the injuries to three were not available immediately, nor was their prognosis.
Both vehicles were totaled.
Oakley police were investigating.
