A 46-year-old Vallejo man has died after a wrong-way driver crashed into the vehicle he was driving on Interstate Highway 80 just west of Pinole Valley Road early Friday, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The CHP was notified at about 12:30 a.m. about a wrong-way driver in a 2015 Toyota Camry traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of I-80 near the Carquinez Bridge. The wrong-way driver, identified as a 78-year-old woman who had been reported missing out of Concord, continued westbound and her vehicle collided into a silver 2007 Ford Focus that had been traveling eastbound near Pinole Valley Road, according to the CHP.

The 46-year-old man driving the Ford Focus was trapped in the vehicle and had to be extricated. He was transported to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, where he was pronounced deceased, the CHP said. His identity wasn’t immediately available. His 39-year-old passenger, also a Vallejo resident, suffered minor injuries.

The 78-year-old driver suffered major injuries and was transported to John Muir to be treated for injuries not considered life threatening, the CHP said. As the woman had been reported missing, her family in Concord has been notified.

“This incident is still under investigation,” the CHP said. “If anyone witnessed this collision, the wrong way Toyota vehicle prior to the collision, or the events leading up to the collision, please contact Contra Costa CHP in Martinez at (925) 646-4980.”
