Brentwood Car Accident Allegedly Caused by Running a Red Light – Three people were injured after a two-car accident in Brentwood where one driver allegedly ran a stoplight in the evening hours of Sunday, October 21, 2018. The identity of the driver at fault has yet to be publicly disclosed due to an ongoing accident investigation. Out of the four people involved in the collision, three were taken to nearby medical centers for treatment. Everyone is expected to recover from their injuries, officials stated.
According to Sgt. Steven Dansen from the Brentwood Police Department, a witness said one of the two vehicles involved ran through a red light at the intersection of Balfour Road and Brentwood Boulevard. Since the accident is still currently being investigated and therefore nothing has been finalized, Dansen declined to speak about who was at fault for the car wreck.
The accident was reported at approximately 6:48 p.m. One of the cars involved was a white Dodge Avenger, while the other vehicle was a gray Mercedes E350. In the moments leading up the collision, the Dodge was making a left turn onto Balfour Road from the northbound lanes of Brentwood Boulevard. At the same time, the Mercedes was traveling southwards down Brentwood Boulevard. Three people were inside of the Dodge, whereas the Mercedes driver was the sole occupant of the vehicle.
Statements from an East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ECCFPD) representative said that all four people were medically evaluated at the site of the accident. One was released at the scene, and the three others were transferred to Antioch’s Kaiser Permanente Medical Center for their moderate injuries. No updates were available on their condition.
Sgt. Dansen stated that there was no indication of drugs or alcohol being a contributing factor to the collision. Both the Dodge and the Mercedes sustained significant damage from the impact of the accident.
