One More Dies After Vacaville Crash

According to officials, one more person passed away after a fatal car accident that took place in Vacaville during the night of Sunday, May 5, 2019. The accident involved two vehicles and happened on a highway location just north of Vacaville city limits. One of the involved individuals tragically lost their life at the scene of the accident while two more people were taken to a local hospital to be treated for major injuries. Sadly, one of these individuals, a 61-year-old Vacaville woman, could not recover and was declared deceased on Monday, May 6, 2019. Officials of Solano County have not yet identified either decedent. I’d like to send my sincere sympathy to those who have suffered the loss of a person they love because of this accident.

Crash Details

California Highway Patrol (CHP) stated that the accident occurred just after 11:00 p.m. on Highway Interstate 505. A 2009 Camry had been driving south in the northbound lane of the highway at a high rate of speed. The Camry entered the direct path of a southbound 2008 Honda Civic and the two vehicles collided head-on a short distance to the south of Allendale Road. The impact of the collision caused one of the vehicles to catch fire, according to police.


When responders arrived at the accident site, they discovered that one of the vehicles had been completely engulfed in flames. Altogether, responders found six injured individuals at the accident scene. One was tragically declared deceased while three were determined to have suffered minor injuries. The remaining two were taken to the Kaiser hospital in Vacaville to receive urgent care. The condition of the remaining hospitalized individual has not been reported.


The highway was closed off to vehicles for hours while responders tended to the accident scene and investigators searched the area. Police have stated that they suspect driving under the influence may have been a factor involved in this accident. However, CHP is still investigating the incident and have asked accident witnesses or others who have information about the crash to call (707) 428-2100 to report what they know.
