September 23, 2013 · 59 comments

Details are still coming in, but we’re getting information that a person was apparently pushed out of a moving vehicle on highway-4 in Concord today just after 4pm.

The person received injuries, although it’s unclear how serious.

When police, fire & paramedics arrived, the person was on the surface streets in the area of Scandinavian Designs near Arnold Industrial & H-4.

The CHP is currently investigating the incident.

We’ll keep you updated.

This is awful. This person is lucky to be alive.

Whoever did this is a monster!

2 Lorelei September 23, 2013 at 4:44 PM

Which direction on Hwy 4?

3 KenInConcord September 23, 2013 at 5:02 PM

Pushing your friends out of a moving car is an option? I wish I had know that a long time ago…..

4 Terrible September 23, 2013 at 5:05 PM

How terrible. I hope this person is ok.

5 elouise September 23, 2013 at 5:12 PM

Did they catch the a**holes that did this?

6 sjmgw September 23, 2013 at 5:16 PM

Male or female driving? Male or female pushed? Color of car?

Was in 4 area around 1654 and all we saw was traffic. Emergency response must have been off the main showy by then.

I drove thru at about 3:45pm Eastbound and between 242 and PC Highway on the left side was a spun out white pickup.Late sixties Chevy if I remember with a single, possibly female, occupant. People were stopping so I breezed by. Wonder if they’re connected.

depends on what the person who got pushed, said/did, before they were pushed out.

meth… not even once!

11 Jerk September 23, 2013 at 5:56 PM

I would be shocked if there’s no witnesses, I mean it’s Hwy 4 aka the Parking Lot.

12 Cowellian September 23, 2013 at 6:10 PM

So THAT’S what that button does?

13 stella September 23, 2013 at 6:11 PM

ok, there has to be a witness. with all the cars around and no one saw anything? How is it the police didn’t catch this vehicle, or even get a license plate. There has to be a look good to this.

14 Howard K Mullins III September 23, 2013 at 6:57 PM

Interesting to see how this turns out once all of the real information is posted.

15 J. September 23, 2013 at 7:07 PM

Hopefully it was a low speed push out.

16 Brian Griffin September 23, 2013 at 7:50 PM

Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?
Yeah. Get out…

17 PC September 23, 2013 at 7:54 PM

Someone needed gas-x?

18 hau'olichic September 23, 2013 at 8:02 PM

saw him, he was bleeding but it didn’t look too bad. he was conscious and talking with police and firefighters. it was not on the freeway but right before the on-ramp to 4 EB.

19 LOUIE September 23, 2013 at 8:32 PM

So many times I have wanted to do this and didn’t have the nerve

20 KDW September 23, 2013 at 10:46 PM

An idiot is born every minute

21 Connie Dobbs September 23, 2013 at 10:49 PM

I said don’t touch the stereo.

22 anon September 23, 2013 at 11:30 PM

Lol Cowellian and Connie Dobbs.

On a serious note, I hope the person who was pushed is OK

23 Starfish September 24, 2013 at 12:22 AM

Connie-is that how you lose your husbands….I really don’t know if that’s legal, but what do I know.

24 Lori September 24, 2013 at 8:13 AM

KenInConcord & Brian Griffin……….too funny, thanks for the laugh. No updates on this?

25 Connie Dobbs September 24, 2013 at 9:21 AM

#23 The first one spontaneously combusted. The second choked on vomit. It wasn’t his, but you can’t really dust for vomit.

26 Starfish September 24, 2013 at 9:36 AM

Ok so it was only the third. lol. You sure know how to keep a man in check. =)

27 Denise September 24, 2013 at 9:41 AM

Saddened by all the tacky jokes. Someone was pushed out of a moving vehicle, and people think it’s funny?

A lot of people don’t have any class.

28 Danielle September 24, 2013 at 10:03 AM

Hopefully the injuries weren’t too serious.

Why anyone would push someone out of a moving vehicle on the freeway is beyond me.

It’s not only sad, it’s pathetic.

29 Connie Dobbs September 24, 2013 at 10:10 AM

Someone has sand where she shouldn’t.

30 Starfish September 24, 2013 at 10:26 AM

You seem to be in a bad mood this morning, Connie, what’s going on.

31 Walnut Creek Resident September 24, 2013 at 10:50 AM

I remember visiting a full care low income nursing home. My friend was working there so I had time to kill. I visited people there and one young lady with a brain injury told me she was pushed out of a car on the freeway by her husband. Is not that the most terrible thing ever? There are very bad people around and we should come out of our bubbles to remember just that! There is nothing funny about this in any way.

32 Connie Dobbs September 24, 2013 at 11:12 AM

Concern fatigue.

33 Mimi (original) September 24, 2013 at 11:34 AM

OMG! That scares me to death!!

34 Mother trucker September 24, 2013 at 1:04 PM

Where is the update

35 Walnut Creek Resident September 24, 2013 at 3:13 PM

Yes #27!! #32 I think to assume that someone who was pushed out of a car because they were provoked is crazy,

36 WHAT SECURITY September 24, 2013 at 3:48 PM

Now was it a pull over and push out or a rolling push out at high speed?

37 RaD September 24, 2013 at 4:35 PM

Update! Update! Where’s the update? :)

38 Cowellian September 24, 2013 at 5:20 PM

I suppose that I could explain the jokes to Denise, but she’ll never get them anyways.

39 Atticus Thraxx September 24, 2013 at 5:37 PM

“Someone has sand where she shouldn’t.” Made me laugh out loud. Thank you.

40 Mitch September 24, 2013 at 6:41 PM

@ Cowellian-39

You’re a moron. And probably one of the people she was referring to that don’t have any class.

41 Cowellian September 24, 2013 at 8:26 PM

So, Mitch doesn’t get it, either.

42 H8highway4 September 24, 2013 at 8:48 PM

Probably trying to get some grey poupon from the rolls royce next to him. Now that is classy!

43 Rick September 24, 2013 at 9:31 PM

@ Cowellian-42

STFU!

44 bluebird September 24, 2013 at 9:40 PM

Cowellian: I understood it was a joke and I laughed. Guess I am a moron and an uncaring person too.

Did we ever find out why? For every action there is a reaction. The act of pushing someone from a vehicle is a pretty strong reaction so I am wondering what action happened prior to this.

45 Angelica September 24, 2013 at 10:53 PM

It doesn’t matter “what happened before this.”

You don’t push someone out of a moving vehicle!

I don’t think there’s anything funny about this either. But I’m used to the classless people on Claycord who make jokes about everything. It’s not only sad, it’s pathetic.

46 rlouise September 24, 2013 at 11:18 PM

Thank you for this. :-)

47 Connie Dobbs September 24, 2013 at 11:51 PM

I understand you think this isn’t funny. I think your tyrannical demand to impose your will on the rest of us isn’t funny. Humor is subjective.

48 rlouise September 25, 2013 at 12:12 AM

@Cowellian
Mitch and Rick are right, it is classless to throw someone out of a moving vehicle. There’s no way around that.

49 Cowellian September 25, 2013 at 7:14 AM

Another slow-learner?

50 rlouise September 25, 2013 at 9:43 AM

@Cowellian
please…..

51 @Connie September 25, 2013 at 9:45 AM

HUH?

52 Cowellian September 25, 2013 at 12:30 PM

Lately, Claycord has been infested with a number of humor-impaired, politically-correct, self-righteous jerks who feel the need to tell the rest of us what we may, or may not say. My hobby is yanking their chains.

I have never thrown anyone out of a moving can, nor have I ever advocated throwing anyone from a moving car. But based on some of the responses on this thread, I suspect some of the posters may have been threatened with being thrown from a moving car, train, or plane.

53 rlouise September 25, 2013 at 1:53 PM

@ #53
This is really horrible news …..we are all wishing well for the victom and family.

54 Keith September 25, 2013 at 2:02 PM

I’m with Mitch, Rick and Angelica.

Some things just aren’t funny. And throwing someone out of a vehicle is one of them.

Em Dubya learned the hard way.

55 Cowellian September 25, 2013 at 2:10 PM

Keith, we already knew that you didn’t have a sense of humor

or a personality.

56 Atticus Thraxx September 25, 2013 at 2:25 PM

Find yourself typing “I’m with Mitch, Rick and Angelica” you’ve already lost the high ground. Keith I’ve read some of your posts and your kind of a richard anyways, so getting on your high horse ain’t nothing but a thang.

57 Rollo Tomasi September 25, 2013 at 2:27 PM

Looks like it’s established. Some of us can find humor in near tragic events, and others cannot. Moving on.

58 sjmgw September 25, 2013 at 4:42 PM

Does anyone know what happened? To who or whom? Have I missed that part somewhere? Anyone ever fallen out of a car? Back in the day when children rode in the front seat of cars that had no seatbelts and Rhodes and Woolworths were in Park N Shop, I feel out of the car on Willow Pass.Road across from Park N Shop. All I remember is being afraid I was going to get in trouble for falling out of the car.

59 sjmgw September 25, 2013 at 4:57 PM

I forgot to mention I was only 3 or 4 years old.
