The accident happened near I-580 in Oakland, across the Bay in San Francisco.

All traffic heading west was closed for a while, said the California Highway Patrol.

CHP Officer, Ron Simmons, told press that the crash was reported at 4.45am.

One car stalled on the third lane but was hit by a second vehicle from behind. Reports are that at least one person died as a result of the fatal accident, said Simmons.

At the moment, there are no more details on the cash, but all westbound Highway 24 lanes were closed down after a Sig-alert was given at 5.16 a.m.

ABC 7 News in San Francisco says:

"One lane was reopened by about 5:45 a.m. The crash was cleared and all lanes reopened by about 6:15 a.m.

A massive back-up was being reported that was stretching to Lafayette on westbound 24."
