OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Former Oakland Raider Thomas Howard was one of two people killed in a high-speed crash on Interstate Highway 880 in Oakland early Monday morning, law enforcement officials confirmed to KPIX 5 Monday.
Witnesses said the driver of a gray BMW 750Li sedan – identified by law enforcement as Howard – was driving north on the highway at more than 100 mph when he lost control and collided with the rear of a semi-truck in the left lane, according to the CHP.
The BMW launched into the air and crossed the center median onto southbound Highway 880, Hill said.
The BMW then struck a Chevrolet Monte Carlo and crashed into a gray Honda CR-V, he said. Officers found the BMW overturned in the southbound right lane and the Honda CR-V blocking the two southbound left lanes, he said.
