The crash was reported around 5:20 a.m. on northbound Highway 238
just south of Hesperian Boulevard and near the Interstate Highway 880
connector in Hayward, according to the CHP. The collision caused the car to
become trapped underneath one of the big rigs.

Alameda County Fire crews attempted to extract the driver of the
car pinned underneath the big rig, but the driver was declared dead around
6:30 a.m., according to the CHP.
