A two-vehicle collision is blocking lanes on Treat Blvd. in Walnut Creek.

The crash, which is on Treat Blvd. at Cherry Lane (going towards I-680), is expected to be cleared from the road by 3pm.

Use caution if you’re in the area.

Thanks to Amy for the picture!

That is the intersection of Treat Blvd and Cherry Lane, not Candeloro…

I got T-boned there a few years back by a red light runner. Note the CHP officer and (I think) a Sheriff since it’s outside W.C. city limits. Makes my ribs hurt just to think about it!

A lot of people go zipping down that section of Treat at 45-50 mph… accidents there are frequent.

did anyone care to mention that the lights were completely not working i drove by right as it happened and the lights were not on at all they really need to make sure they have back up power in case this happens cause its not safe for anyone if the lights arent working i thought it was a green light until i saw that black car hit the other one sucks for both parties

Why is the area arround the Pleasant Hill Bart Station still an un-incorporated area of CoCoCounty, while surrounded by Walnut Creek and Pleasant Hill?

Traffic lights not working=treating the intersection as a four-way stop. Obviously, one or both of these drivers didn’t do that.

This appears to be some sort of traffic accident.

There is no advantage to being in the W.C. limits. The sheriff is around more than the (decimated( WCPD. When the topic comes up the locals, esp in the Walden area resist. Only thing being in the city brings is more items on your property tax bill. Like the parcel tax the W.C. is getting ready to put on the ballot for next November. That will pay to keep the Library open more, despite the city having $1.3M for a new playground at Heather Farm.

Am a long-term WC resident, and could not disagree with you more about the responsiveness of WCPD. They are a very professional, and efficient police force in our neighborhood. WCPD has a great website, and an excellent daily bulletin, as well as helpful email alert messages. I think most citizens of Walnut Creek are happy with its police force. The idea of Co Co Sheriffs being more prevalent and responsive is frankly laughable. Didn’t work out so well for Jaycee Dugard.

It was a 3 vehicle crash. There was also a black Chrysler 300C just to the left of the area visible in this photo.
Also I have to agree with Jo Jo there, as a WC citizen I think the police are quite responsive. Though it has been a while since I or anyone I know has had to call them, so it’s possible that has changed.
