Driver dies in head-on crash on Vasco Road in East Bay

A head-on collision early Monday killed one person on Vasco Road, which connects Contra Costa and Alameda counties, the California Highway Patrol said.

The CHP said it appears as though the driver of a Ford Fusion crashed into a tractor trailer combination on Vasco Road.

The Ford driver was pronounced dead and the driver of the tractor trailer was uninjured, the CHP said.

The CHP closed Vasco Road in both directions and ordered a Sig Alert between Byron and Livermore for several hours. 

Anyone with information should call the CHP in Martinez at 925-646-4980.
