A slowed or stopped vehicle on eastbound Interstate Highway 80 near Gilman Street in Berkeley caused a three-vehicle crash early Wednesday morning that sent one person to a hospital with major injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol.  

A vehicle that had either slowed or stopped on the highway and did not have its lights on was rear-ended by another vehicle apparently traveling at highway speed around 1 a.m., CHP Officer Robert Haven said.  

A third vehicle also traveling at highway speed then crashed into the two vehicles already stopped on the highway, causing major injuries to one of the third vehicle’s occupants, Haven said.
