A 65-year-old San Jose man died early Tuesday in a four-vehicle crash on Highway 680 that closed down several southbound lanes of the busy commuter route for more than three hours, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The four-vehicle collision, located near Vargas Road, was reported around 4:30 a.m. A Sig-alert was issued about 10 minutes later, according to the CHP.
The collision occurred when a Toyota Corolla stalled in the roadway and was struck by traffic, California Highway Patrol Officer Steve Creel said.
The driver was transported to Valley Medical Center with injuries and the passenger of the vehicle died at the scene, according to Creel.
The man who died was later identified Tuesday as 52-year-old Guy Li of Cupertino.
The roadway was cleared of the collision at about 6:45 a.m., Creel said.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
