According to a news statement from the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District, a person was flown to the hospital by helicopter on Saturday afternoon shortly after 5 p.m. following a significant car accident on Walnut Blvd. at Bougainvilla Drive in Brentwood.
Officers say one automobile and a tree on the boulevard’s center divider were both destroyed, as the vehicle collided with the tree.
