All lanes have reopened on westbound state Highway 24 in Orinda after a triple-fatal crash early Saturday.

The crash was first reported around 3:09 a.m. on the highway just east of Camino Pablo, according to the California Highway Patrol.

For unknown reasons, the 2009 Nissan Versa went off the highway and then crashed into a tree, the CHP said.

The passengers were a 21-ywar-old Oaklamd man and a 22-year-old Hayward man. Their names have not been released. The driver was unable to be identified at the scene, according to the CHP.

It’s unknown if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash, the CHP said.

Drove past this one about 30 minutes after it happened. Instantly sent prayers up because of how bad it looked. It was one of the worst looking accidents I’ve seen in some time. Pray for the families especially during this holiday season. Tragedy can strike so quick and unexpectedly. Please be careful during the times of inclement weather, even if it is not actively raining, the wet roads and excessive speed do not mix well, heck the wet roads and the speed limit don’t mix well some times.

When will people learn to wear seatbelts.

No one said they weren’t wearing seatbelts!

So sad especially during the holiday season. Deepest condolences to all of their families and friends.

The way the auto looked seatbelts would not have mattered.

A Nissan Versa weighs about 2600 lbs. The NHTSA gives the Versa’s “structure/safety cage” a rating of poor.

Sending positive thoughts to the families coping with this loss.

Wouldn’t doubt it if they were speeding since it seems like that’s all people do around here… that car was pretty mangled…

Saw a picture of the car on channel two last night. No one would survive that. Driver never slowed down he must have died in his sleep. Lets hope all three did.

Given they couldn’t identify the driver at the scene suggests he/she did not have a driver’s license with them……..

Either way, thoughts and prayers to those involved. This is never a good time to lose a family member, regardless of the reason.
