San Jose driver injured in crash at I-680 off-ramp at Sunol Boulevard

Second crash at interchange in as many days

A San Jose woman was seriously injured this morning when she drove in front of another car while attempting to make a left turn in Pleasanton, police said.

It was the second accident at the interchange in as many days.

A two-car accident yesterday at about the same time blocked traffic exiting Interstate 680 southbound onto Sunol Boulevard.

In this morning's crash, witnesses told Pleasanton police that the accident happened as the driver was trying to turn left onto Sunol Boulevard from a northbound I-680 off-ramp at about 9:15 a.m.

She first stopped at a stop sign at the end of the off-ramp, then

drove in front of a car traveling east on Sunol Boulevard and was hit. It is unclear why she failed to yield, police said.

The woman suffered head trauma and was taken to Eden Medical

Center, police said. No other injuries were reported.

A two-car accident Tuesday at about 9:15 Tuesday occurred between a silver Lexus headed toward Pleasanton and a blue Toyota exiting I-680 northbound, according to Pleasanton police Office Tom Hansen.

"The Toyota pulled out in front of the Lexus," Hansen said.

Both drivers were wearing seatbelts, which Hansen credited for minimizing injuries. The woman driving the Toyota was taken to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley with a head injury, he said. The driver of the Lexus was not injured.
