ALERT: Vehicle Collision Blocking Traffic on Ygnacio – Backed Up to Oak Grove

September 12, 2013 16:52 pm · 8 comments


A three vehicle collision has forced the closure of one lane on eastbound Ygnacio, just before Cowell Road in Concord.

Only minor injuries were reported.

Traffic is currently backed up to Oak Grove. All vehicles involved in the collision need to be towed, so the road should be open by 6pm.

Please use an alternate route.

Thanks to J. Blankenship for the picture!

Google maps shows it’s backed up to Bancroft.

Left work at 5 pm and it was backed up to Wimbledon. I made a u-turn and came over the hill on Treat. Traffic was flowing much better on Treat.

looked like a pretty bad crash.

Claycord moderators, unlike so-called “journalists” in the mass media, are apparently and consciously aware of how incidents these incidents are described as a collision… not an “accident”.

is this about the same spot as that last bad accident where the car crossed the divide and flipped? i really could never figure out which direction he was going September 12, 2013 at 10:02 PM

@Ms. Litella, Yes, this is just a few feet away from where the other crash occurred. They were both going eastbound, but this crash hit the center divider, the other one was just past the center divider closer to Cowell Road.

Thats a bad spot on that road, people drive pretty fast and hit the curve too quickly and this is what happens. Two accidents in the same spot in a few days….. wow. Slow down people!

Is the CPD just hanging out in their patrol cars doing nothing like they did back in July when the Cowell light was out and traffic was backed up to Oak Grove?
