At 10:23 p.m. on Monday, May 15, 2023, the Antioch Police Department Communications Center received emergency calls reporting a vehicle collision at 4198 Lone Tree Way. Officers arrived and found a vehicle with three occupants having collided with a tree. The occupants, two men and a woman, suffered serious injuries and were subsequently pronounced dead by the emergency services.

The APD traffic unit reacted on site and took over the direction of the investigation. Preliminary information revealed the victim vehicle was traveling eastbound on the Lone Tree Way at high speed. The vehicle involved in the accident crashed into another vehicle, causing it to lose control, veer off the roadway and collide with a tree. The occupant of the other vehicle was not injured. Identification of victims is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

This investigation is ongoing and we are asking anyone who witnessed the crash or who has information about the incident to contact Officer Egan at or (925) 204-1587. You can also send an anonymous tip with the keyword ANTIOCH to number 274637 (CRIME).
