    Two people died in separate accidents Thursday  night in the East Bay; one in Antioch, which claimed the life of a 14-year-old girl, and another one in Hayward.

    In Antioch, police responded to the intersection of Hillcrest Avenue and Hidden Glen Drive at about 6:42  p.m. and found that a car had struck the teen as she was trying to cross the street. She was taken to a hospital, where she said.

    Police said the driver of the vehicle, as well as several witnesses, remained  at the scene of the collision and provided accounts of the incident to investigators.

    The investigation into the incident is ongoing, but police said  preliminary indications are that neither alcohol nor speed contributed in the  collision.

    The name of the victim has not been released, pending notification  of family members, police said.

    Then in Hayward, about 11:30 p.m., police were called to  30640 San Clemente St. to find a Ford SUV,  the driver, who was pronounced dead at the scene, inside.

    Based on preliminary investigation, police said the SUV collided with a fire hydrant and then a tree, causing  major damage to the area surrounding the driver's side door, police said.
       
    Based on the extent of damage done to the vehicle, police said it  is possible that the speed of the vehicle may have been a factor in the  collision.

    Police said it remains undetermined whether drug or alcohol use  were contributing factors in the collision.

    The identity, age and gender of the deceased has not yet been  released, police said.
