One person died in a collision Wednesday morning between a big-rig and a vehicle on northbound Interstate 680 in Fremont, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash was reported at 8:21 a.m. on northbound I-680 south of Mission Boulevard.

A vehicle struck the back of a big-rig and someone inside the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene, CHP officials said. Footage from the scene showed the mangled car had been crumpled beneath the vehicle and its contents were on the road. No children were involved in the crash, the CHP said. 

The far right lane of northbound Highway 680 was blocked following the crash but reopened around 9:30 a.m., the CHP said. Emergency personnel are still on scene and residual delays are likely, given the traffic that was backed up when the road was shut down.
