HAYWARD (KCBS) – Two pedestrians were hit and one was killed in a Hayward crash Friday morning involving an Alameda County Sheriff’s patrol car, authorities said.
The California Highway Patrol said the collision happened about 4:30 a.m. at Mission Boulevard and Cherry Way in an unincorporated part of Hayward.
Sgt. J.D. Nelson said after hitting the pedestrians, the deputy then swerved and crashed into a parked car.
The man died at the scene and the woman was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. It was not known if they had been walking in a crosswalk.
Nelson said the nine-year veteran deputy, whose name has not been released, was not injured. The deputy was expected to be put on administrative leave.
