Coroner IDs Los Angeles man killed in crash at I-580/I-680 interchange

CHP: Sedan plowed into back of big-rig late Wednesday night

The Alameda County Coroner’s Bureau has identified the driver killed in a crash at the interchange of interstates 580 and 680 in Pleasanton late Wednesday night as Phillip Joseph Begin III, 46, of Los Angeles.

Begin III was the sole occupant of a white sedan traveling eastbound on I-580 around 10:40 p.m. Wednesday when the car cut over to the right at the last minute at the I-680 transition ramp and crashed into the back of the big-rig, which had pulled over to the shoulder area between I-580 and the ramp, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The Los Angeles man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The CHP said the big-rig was located fully within the white lines of the "gore point," a triangular area on the side of a roadway that acts like a shoulder.
