On September 22, 2019, we lost our beloved Jesus Berrios II. He was a son, brother, and husband whose life ended too soon due to this unsafe bridge. He was helping a friend that was unable to ride due to being drunk. He lost his life saving another by being a Good Samaritan.
We are distraught to find out that 5 additional lives, Kyle Erickson, Christopher Mata, Cecilia Ayla, Perla Navarro and her unborn baby have been lost due to this low concrete barrier wall on the Carquinez bridge. This is the third time a car has gone over the barrier near the bridge this year. There have been several accidents prior to these that have occurred in the same curve location resulting to tragic loses. The grieving families and community of Crockett would like to end these tragic loses with a higher barrier wall or guard rail to prevent any vehicles or motorcycles going over this bridge.
