The Toyota was pushed into the rear of a Ford. Traffic in the area was slow due to a Caltrans closure of two of the lanes.

The girl's father suffered major injuries and her mother suffered minor injuries, both were transported to the hospital. It wasn't immediately clear who was the driver.

The occupants of the other vehicles were not injured in the collision.

The incident initially blocked all lanes of Interstate Highway 680.

All lanes were reopened by 2:22 a.m. Investigators said alcohol or drugs do not appear to have been a factor in the collision.
