August 15, 2014 · 22 comments

A wrong-way driver on state Highway-4 in Martinez this morning caused a traffic collision that closed two lanes of the highway, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The driver was going east in the westbound lanes of the highway near Morello Avenue at about 8:30 a.m. and caused the crash, the CHP said.

The CHP closed two lanes of the highway for its investigation, but those lanes have reopened.

Although not confirmed at this time, we’re hearing no life-threatening injuries were reported.
