CASTRO VALLEY -- The woman who died in a fatal three-vehicle accident Tuesday afternoon on eastbound Interstate 580 has been identified as 22-year-old Alyssa Fantozzi, of San Ramon.
The accident occurred just after noon Tuesday near the Center Street/Grove Way exit and closed all eastbound lanes of the freeway for 1½ hours. It involved two cars and a tractor-trailer. Each vehicle had just one occupant.
Police are investigating the accident, but Fantozzi apparently died when her car became lodged under the tractor-trailer.
A woman driving the second car suffered minor injuries and was taken to Eden Medical Center. The big rig's driver was not hurt.
