An Amazon delivery driver in San Ramon was kidnapped after a vehicle collision Saturday afternoon. 

According to the San Ramon Police Department, the Amazon truck and a dark-colored SUV collided near Crow Canyon Road and San Ramon Valley Boulevard. 

Police said an unknown man and a woman were inside the SUV. 

After the crash, the woman got into the passenger seat of the Amazon truck and forced the victim to drive to a Bank of America in San Ramon while the man followed in the SUV. 

SRPD said the suspects made the Amazon driver withdraw an undisclosed amount of cash from the bank and forced the Amazon employee to drive to a Bank of America in Dublin. 

The Dublin transaction did not push through, so the suspects left the delivery driver there. 

There are no reports of injuries. 

No other information was immediately available. SRPD will continue to investigate.
