A fatality reported on the Oak Street offramp from northbound Interstate Highway 880 on Thursday evening remains under investigation, according to a California Highway Patrol spokesman.

A body was found, but the death was not due to a traffic collision and is not being investigated as homicide, CHP Officer Sean Wilkenfeld said.

The offramp did not need to be closed for the incident.

An Oakland fire dispatcher said that the incident came in as a medical call at 6:23 p.m.

The Alameda County Coroner's Office has been called to the scene.
