Drowsy Driving Causes Car Crash in Brentwood

I’m Ed Smith, a Brentwood Auto Accident Lawyer. A young male was involved in a single-vehicle rollover accident in Brentwood during the early morning hours of Monday, March 19, 2018.

Driver Falls Asleep and Strikes Two Trees

The driver has been identified as a 26-year old male, who had been moving south across O’Hara Avenue before running off the road past Atherton Boulevard at 3:00 a.m. The vehicle first crashed into a nearby tree which severed its base. Then, the car supposedly began to roll on its side before crashing into another tree. The force of the impact resulted in a shattered windshield. Additionally, the roof folded over itself, leaving the car interior completely exposed.

Officials from the Brentwood Police Department were the first responders at the site of the accident. They were followed by an AMR ambulance as well as the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ECCFPD) Engine 52. Firefighters with the ECCFPD disclosed that the male driver had moderate injuries following the accident, including lacerations. However, he was still responsive and alert in his interactions with emergency responders.

A helicopter from REACH air medical services was used to transport the driver to the John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek. ECCFPD Engine 52 initiated a landing zone for the helicopter to pick up the injured man at Freedom Basin Park.

Officials investigating the accident indicated that there was no reason to believe intoxication was involved.
