At 1:07 PM, Wednesday (11/15/2023) State Street was closed for about 45 minutes due to a serious collision.
An unknown vehicle was improperly exiting the parking lot at 3225 State St. when a Toyota Prius, being a Good Samaritan, stopped in the right lane to let the first vehicle exit on to State as the light had changed.
The driver of the Prius then noticed a Toyota truck signaling to make a left turn from the median on State into the parking lot next to the Chinese restaurant at 3524 State St. This gave the truck the right-of-way.
The Toyota truck was then T-boned as it made the left turn on the number one lane. The third car involved was a blue Volkswagen sedan driven by a male who was transported to Cottage Hospital with unknown injuries.
The front end of the Volkswagen had substantial damage, the airbags did deploy. The hood of the blue car was peeled back and the engine compartment was exposed.
State Street was closed from Las Positas to N. Ontare Rd. for about 45 minutes. Some vehicles coming out of parking lots from nearby businesses ignored police and still drove through the closed off portion and the actual scene.
Something to note here, if a vehicle has stopped in the #2 lane ( right lane) on a two lane road, a vehicle approaching in the #1 lane (left lane) should also consider coming to a complete stop.
