Three Identified Following Fatal Fairfield Crash

Fatal Fairfield Crash Victims Identified

On Tuesday, November 13, 2018, the Solano County Sheriff’s Office released the identities of three people who recently lost their lives in a local car accident. The crash occurred in Fairfield on Friday, November 9, 2018, four days earlier and reportedly involved only one vehicle. The fatally injured individuals were identified as 18-year-old Sacramento resident Katie Good, 20-year-old Elk Grove resident Diamond Day, and 19-year-old Stockton resident Mary Grosvenor. An investigation into the accident is ongoing and being conducted by Solano area California Highway Patrol (CHP). My condolences are extended to the mourning families of Ms. Good, Mr. Day, and Ms. Grosvenor after they have endured such a tragic event.

Collision Details

The accident took place at about 5:50 a.m. according to CHP officer David Harvey. Harvey reported that Day had been driving in a Hyundai Elantra with the two women as passengers on Highway Interstate 80 and was heading east at a high rate of speed just before the crash. The vehicle reportedly side-swept a guardrail, causing it to overturn. The vehicle rolled until it struck a support pillar under the Highway 12 overcrossing on the western end of the city.

According to reports, all three vehicle occupants suffered severe injuries during the crash. Sadly, none of their injuries could be treated, and medical officials declared the three individuals deceased on-scene. Additionally, no other vehicles or people were reported to have been involved.

Investigation

While officers are still investigating the accident, CHP has not stated what factors they suspect to have been involved other than high speed. Factors that are commonly involved in accidents such as this one are various and include common collision causes like driving while distracted, vehicle part malfunctions, hazards in the road, and more.

CHP has asked the public to help them with this investigation, urging anybody with relevant information to contact officers and report what they know. Those with information about the crash can call either (800) TELL-CHP or the Solano County CHP Office’s non-emergency phone line, (707) 428-2100.

Calling a Lawyer

Families are often left devastated by the sudden death of their loved one. Intense emotions including depression, anxiety, anger, and more are all very common and can make it difficult to handle everyday life. For these reasons, many avoid calling a wrongful death lawyer. However, the sooner an attorney can get to work on your case, the quicker they are to ensure that you are compensated for your losses.
