I-880 traffic alert lifted after Fremont vehicle fire – California News

FREMONT — All lanes of Interstate 880 reopened to traffic after a vehicle fire forced their closure Wednesday, the California Highway Patrol said.

At 7:03 p.m., officers received word of a collision in northbound lanes of I-880 just south of the northbound Fremont Boulevard on-ramp, CHP Officer Damian Cistaro said.

When officers arrived, they found two pickup trucks that had collided with a black Nissan Altima, which had caught fire and was fully engulfed.

Alameda County firefighters also responded, handling the fire and treating drivers and passengers who suffered only minor injuries.

Officers issued a Sig-alert at 7:18 p.m., routing traffic through the nearby truck-scaled entrance. That alert was lifted just before 8:15 p.m., Cistaro said.

Contact George Kelly at 408-859-5180.
