Fatal wreck blocks Highway 20

DISCOVERY BAY — The State Patrol is investigating a fatal wreck that occurred on state Highway 20 near Discovery Bay at about 10:45 a.m. today (Friday).

Trooper Russ Winger said a westbound semi truck collided with an eastbound car at milepost 1 just east of U.S Highway 101 near Discovery Bay.

The driver of the car was killed, Winger said.

The identity of the driver, an adult woman, was not immediately available because next of kin have not been notified.

There were no other occupants of the vehicle, Winger said.

Both lanes of state Highway 20 were blocked at 2 p.m. from U.S. Highway 101 to Eaglemount Road at about milepost 1.8, the state Department of Transportation said.

The highway remained closed until 5:49 p.m.

An estimated 300-foot section of the roadway was strewn with parts, debris and fluid, Winger said.
