No major injuries resulted from a multi-vehicle crash that occurred just after 11 a.m. Monday on San Pablo Avenue near the San Pablo Police Department, according to police.
Officers responding to the accident scene found a van laying on its side across lanes of traffic. The van had crashed into a car, then into a city of San Pablo sanitation truck, before rolling over onto its side, police said. The other two vehicles involved were also damaged.
Contra Costa County firefighters rescued the trapped van driver through the windshield, police said. The crash scene has since been cleared from the roadway.
A cause of the crash wasn’t immediately available. In its report, San Pablo police urged drivers to “slow down, be aware of your surroundings, and drive with caution.”
