The Toyota was pushed into the rear of a Ford.

Traffic in the area was slow due to a Caltrans closure of two of the lanes.

A rear passenger in the Toyota, an 8-year-old girl, was killed in the collision.

The driver and the front passenger of the Toyota suffered major and minor injuries and were transported to the hospital.

The occupants of the other vehicles were not injured in the collision.

The incident initially blocked all lanes of Interstate Highway 680.

All lanes were reopened by 2:22 a.m.

Investigators told KPIX 5 that the crash may have been caused by a driver who fell asleep at the wheel.

Alcohol or drugs do not appear to have been a factor in the collision.
