Vallejo Driver Critically Injured
Vallejo Police Department (VPD) officials have reported that a Vallejo man was severely injured during a collision on Saturday, September 1, 2018. Officers who responded to the accident said it involved only a single vehicle and happened just after sunrise. The collision reportedly caused a fire that eventually burned the entire car. The injured man’s identity has not yet been reported by local officials. The man remained grave at a local hospital on Tuesday, September 4, 2018.
VPD stated that the crash took place at around 7:20 a.m. A man had been driving a Kia Optima eastbound on Overland Alley west of the Sutter Street intersection when his car suddenly veered off the roadway. After the vehicle exited, the road continued briefly before striking a wooden fence. The collision reportedly caused the car to catch fire. Further details about the crash were not available at the time of reporting.
VPD received a call reporting the crash at 7:23 a.m. and immediately sent responders to the accident site. Officers arriving at the scene found the Kia completely covered in fire. The vehicle’s driver was found a short distance from his car. Responders said that the man had suffered severe burn injuries and was rushed by ambulance to an intensive care unit in a nearby hospital.
Investigators from VPD say that they are working to determine what factors were involved in this collision. Officers stated that they do not know whether or not the driver had been under the influence at the time of the accident but are attempting to find out. Accident factors that are frequently the cause of collisions like this one include vehicle defects, medical emergencies, hazards in the roadway, and more.
VPD has asked that anybody with information about this accident contact them to help officers investigate. Callers can contact the VPD Traffic Division at (707) 648-4329 to report their knowledge.
