Two people were injured during a rollover vehicle collision on Oak St. near the Downtown Concord BART station on Saturday evening.

The crash occurred about a block away from the Concord Police Department.

Although two were injured, their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

PG&E also responded to the scene because the vehicle was stuck on one of their wires near the ground.

The cause of the collision hasn’t been released at this time.

Thanks to Robert for the picture!

We need rollover air bags. The car companies are going to have to rethink how the can protect little children in the back seats. Drivng parents better start to be more careful.

Mr. Mayor,

What happened yesterday at Clayton & Detroit around 5:30pm. We drove by and there were about 5 cop cars and 2 ambulances.

@mdhs80, Apparently a drunk person tripped and fell and was injured pretty badly. At first they weren’t sure what happened, so that is why there was a large police response. They thought it might have been an assault.

11 I can't imagine the driver was speeding. May 11, 2014 at 11:27 AM

That would be illegal, and our Police would not allow it. Sometimes cars just flip over for no reason at all, especially on hot days, if the wind is just right….

A friend and I were on the platform at Concord BART when this happened. The driver had been speeding and driving erratically a minute or two prior to the flip. They had been honking and weaving their way through traffic coming off of Monument/Galindo, so there was a LOT of noise not only from them, but from angry motorists as well.

Great Mothers Day gift, don’t roll your car over for mom.

L, Thanks for posting Truth. Hopefully, this has been relayed to the police.

I think those sneaky fire hydrants have something to do with all these rollovers.

That was my friend in the car. she has a lot going on in life and went missing a few days ago…. why does speed always have to be the blame? people need to shut up and stop blaming speed on everything……

19 Cowellian May 12, 2014 at 4:10 PM

I’ll bet she has a lot going on! Maybe you can tell us why speed shouldn’t be blamed for this?

How you guys keep getting your cars upside down is beyond me.
