KTVU - The roadways have re-opened after a messy morning commute in the East Bay Friday. Two separate incidents had traffic at a standstill on two major freeways in the Tri-Valley area.
The roadway re-opened around 8:30 a.m. in a crash that closed all westbound lanes of interstate 580 near Eden Canyon Road in Castro Valley after a big rig overturned at 4:43 a.m.
Three vehicles were involved in the crash, according to Officer Tyler Hahn of the CHP. The incident is still under investigation, but it appears that there was a lane change in which the vehicles somehow clipped each other, Hahn said.
All southbound lanes of interstate 680 in Sunol re-opened after a crash and fire involving multiple vehicles just after 5:00 a.m.
This crash involved a big-rig that caught fire, Hahn said. The crash involved several vehicles north of Sheridan Road in Alameda County, the CHP said.
This crash is still being investigated, but it appears that a vehicle may have rear-ended the big-rig, Hahn said.
