There was a fatal vehicle accident in unincorporated Antioch this morning, involving a head-on collision between a car and gravel truck.

The accident happened at approximately 9:15 a.m. on Route 173, about 1.5 miles west of Lake Avenue.

The accident happened when the car crossed the center line and collided with the westbound truck, despite the truck driver’s attempts to avoid the accident by swerving.
