The California Highway Patrol reported that a 34-year-old Tracy man was driving a 2000 Toyota Tundra on westbound Interstate 580 just west of Bird Road at about 2:55 a.m. At the same time, a 30-year-old Tracy woman was driving her 2004 Dodge Caravan, heading east in the westbound lanes, and the two vehicles collided head-on.
Both people died at the scene. There were no other people involved, according to the CHP. The westbound lanes were closed for about three hours.
CHP spokesman Bob Rickman said the crash is still under investigation, and it’s unclear how the woman ended up heading east in the westbound lane. A family member identified the woman as Christina Trevino, mother of four, from Tracy. The man’s name was not available.
