Valley Memorial Hospital in Livermore? That hasn't existed for decades. It's Valley Care in Pleasanton.

Valley Memorial is also still in Livermore, google it. Very sad story :( I drove by on 680 last night and you could see all the lights. Thoughts to their families

Valley Memorial is still in Livermore but they do not have an Emergency Room, just an Urgent Care center (very different than an ER). So the first "Fact Checker" was correct.

What a tragedy.

PS...I am almost sure speed was the problem...if so we will never learn.

Very sad situation for all concerned.

It is such a beautiful, but deadly road for all, IF there's a speeder or drunk sharing that road.
