On the Las Positas overpass right now. Traffic snarled. Looked like someone was trying to exit the freeway southbound and someone else was trying to enter the freeway going in the wrong way on that offramp.

Head-On Traffic Collision on Las Positas

I sent in the photo. I was getting off at the Southbound offramp and was first at the light so I could take the photo. I believe the Prius was innocently exiting the southbound offramp and had not yet turned its wheels to go up Las Positas. And I believe the truck came down Las Positas in the middle lane as if to get on the left side southbound onramp but instead turned to go into the right side offramp the wrong direction and hit the Prius head on.

I don't get the photo. It looks like the truck was coming UP the on-ramp.
Can someone please clarify what each vehicle was trying to do?

PETERN I was confused as well but I think I figured it out. The Prius exited the freeway at LP SB where there is always a homeless person. Then was either going straight through the light to get back on the freeway or turning left to go toward the golf course. The other car must have been on LP going toward Modoc and for some reason tried to get on the freeway the wrong way . The sign in the back is deceiving I don’t think it has to do with that on ramp. It’s the one behind the Prius.

I've lived in SB all of my life, and been over that overpass literally thousands of times, and I NEVER thought that it was confusing. As overpasses go, it's probably less confusing than most. There is only one onramp, and one offramp, each going southbound. I don't understand what's so confusing. Maybe, everyone's distracted by the urine soaked bum that's always on the corner...
