Dashboard photo of Treat Boulevard crash sent in by Patch reader.

Patch reader Janiece Elliott sent in this dashboard photo of an accident on Treat Boulevard Tuesday.

It took firefighters a while to extricate the driver of the dump truck, which collided with the back of a Lucky's semi truck, said Elliott. The driver was transported to a local hospital with moderate injuries, reported Fire Marshal Lewis Broschard of the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District.

The accident took place around 10 a.m. Tuesday on Treat at Buskirk Ave. The dump truck's cabin was smashed, Elliott reported.

Omg! Thank you for posting! I waS the only one who got out of my car to check if this man was ok! He looked in pain and all I could really do was call #911 and get my children away from the scene. I appreciate the update because I felt horrible leaving him behind not knowing the outcome. I appreciate your post!
