It is sad for me to report that early Sunday morning August 15th, The Contra Costa County Coroner’s Office identified Mehrdad Emami, 46, of San Ramon as a victim killed in a multi-car fiery accident near the Crow Canyon exit in San Ramon. A 40-year-old woman from San Ramon, driver of the Emami car, has also been hospitalized with major injuries.
The auto accident occured at approximately 1:20 a.m. when a Nissan Maxima rear ended with a silver BMW, which was carrying Emami and his 40-year-old driver. The collision sent both vehicles into an uncontrollable spin near a forklift working along side the highway, which caught fire when struck.
The cause of the accident was still under investigation last month. My sincere condolences go out to the family of the deceased and to the injured survivors.
