Two separate vehicle collisions blocked eastbound lanes on H-4 in Concord late Wednesday night.

The first crash occurred at 4 & 242 where a vehicle smashed into a car that was parked on the side of the freeway (pictured above). No major injuries were reported, according to ConFire.

The other crash happened on the Port Chicago Highway off-ramp. At least one patient was brought to John Muir in Concord. The extend of his/her injuries are unknown at this time.

I almost hit a guy earlier this morning around 430 at the Olivera offramp. He was off to the side but walking halfway in the right lane and I almost hit him. He had a back pack on so must have been homeless not really sure.

It’s “extent ” not extend

What time was the Port Chicago accident?

@ foxylady,

It just scared the hell out of me because I saw him at the last second. There was very little lighting right where he was walking. Couldn’t figure out why he was walking so close to the lane like that putting himself in danger.

It was foxylady’s boyfriend.

@ Sinn Feiner, #1------------so a backpack wearing person must be homeless? April 10, 2014 at 10:25 AM

Could also have just been under the influence, lost, many things other than homeless.

does this happen so often? How do you rear
end a car on the shoulder? At least the person
in the disabled car stayed inside, or got well
away from traffic. There have been several people
killed standing in traffic near their disabled car.

Foxlady is looking for a debate or an online argument because she/he has Waaaay too much time on it’s hands.
Extend, extent who cares? We all know it was just a typo.
Some people put so much focus on such little things, it’s funny. C’mon let’s all get along. Can we have a group hug here?
Btw, jk foxlady

This is why I always remind my family and friends…if your car breaks down on the side of the road and it is SAFE to exit……stay clear of the front of the vehicle….exit towards to rear of the vehicle at a diagnol and sit on a hillside if possible. NEVER sit on the guardrail next to your car, or you could get squashed!! If it is unsafe to exit your better off staying inside…

Looks like Foxylady woke up on the wrong side of the bed today!

The emergency lane is NOT safe on Highway 4; it is too narrow and close too traffic. more fine design work. At 1:00 p.m. there was so much traffic and traffic hazards, you can hardly drive from Antioch to Concord. They should have made Highway 4 six lanes on each side. So ridiculous they keep expanding 680 over and over instead of just doing it RIGHT the first time; I can see the same thing happening with 4 now.
