Fairfield Fatal Accidents
I’m Ed Smith, a Fairfield wrongful death lawyer. Fairfield is a bustling and growing city on the edge of the San Francisco Bay Area that offers residents a fast-paced city life without the congestion of the major metropolitan area. However, Fairfield has been the location of a number of fatal collisions in recent months.
Fairfield Fatal Crash Stats

Of these 2,811 collisions, 37 resulted in fatal injuries for one or more involved individuals.

This number is lower than the figure for all of Solano County, for which 1.98 percent of injury accidents involved fatal injuries. Additionally, during 2011-2016, Solano County saw 168 fatal vehicle accidents, meaning that about 22 percent of fatal accidents in Solano County occur within Fairfield city limits.

A Recent Fatal Fairfield Collision
One of the most recent fatal vehicle accidents in Fairfield occurred on Friday, September 15, 2017, when a local woman lost her life after her vehicle collided with a tree off of the shoulder of the north side of Rockville Road. The woman received fatal trauma during the collision and was pronounced dead at the collision scene.
Authorities reported that they were not sure why the woman’s vehicle traveled off of the roadway and told the public that DUI is not suspected to have been a factor in the incident.
Another Recent Fatal Accident
Another tragic accident happened on August 22, 2017, when a woman driving a 2002 Volvo on Highway 80 at around 1:20 a.m. entered the offramp at Pittman road on the west side of Fairfield. Authorities reported that the woman lost control off her vehicle after entering the off-ramp at an unknown speed.
After losing control of her Volvo, the woman drove off of the freeway and struck a tree head-on, leaving her with fatal traumatic injuries.
