OAKLAND (CBS SF) – A man and a child were killed in a collision on Interstate 880 near Downtown Oakland early Monday morning.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the crash took place on Northbound 880 near 5th Avenue shortly after 5 a.m.
The CHP said both of the victims were in the backseat of a BMW traveling at a high rate of speed when it veered off the roadway and hit a box van on the shoulder.
After striking the box truck, the BMW reportedly re-entered the roadway and was struck by a Ford F-250 pickup.
Authorities said it looks like the child was not properly restrained.
The car’s driver, another child and a woman passenger were all take to local hospitals.
Officials said it doesn’t appear as if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
Lanes on Northbound 880 near the scene of the crash were blocked for much of the morning commute, causing a backup that stretched to 98th Avenue in East Oakland. The CHP announced all lanes were reopened shortly after 8 a.m.
