A family of four was hospitalized with minor injuries on Thanksgiving morning after their SUV veered off the freeway in Livermore and landed in a creek. 

According to the California Highway Patrol, the wreck was reported at around 3:20 a.m. along Interstate Highway 580 east of Isabet Avenue. 

The family’s Toyota Highlander was spotted about 30 feet down an embankment and partially submerged in water. 

The family, consisting of two adults and two children, were hospitalized with minor injuries from the crash. 

Authorities believe driver fatigue caused the vehicle to veer off the road.

Alcohol or drugs don’t appear to have factored in the crash.
