PLEASANT HILL -- A man and his child were taken to a hospital for observation after their vehicle overturned Saturday evening on northbound Highway 680, briefly blocking traffic in three lanes.
The crash was reported about 5:53 p.m. when their Toyota Corolla flipped, landing on its roof across two lanes of the highway near the Contra Costa Boulevard offramp. The cause of the crash was not immediately known, but it appeared no one else was involved, according to a California Highway Patrol dispatcher.
The car was cleared to the side of the highway and all lanes were open by 6:08 p.m.
The child complained of pain, the dispatcher said, and was taken to Childrens Hospital Oakland for observation. The father accompanied the child.
