Man dies in horrific high-speed crash in Vallejo, witnesses say police had been pursuing Honda

VALLEJO, Calif. (KGO) -- The California Highway Patrol is investigating a high-speed, single-car crash that led to a man's death Wednesday afternoon. Witnesses say the crash came at the end of a police pursuit.

It happened along Interstate 780 at the Glen Cove exit.

Kailee Bullock said she was outside her home just after 1 pm. when she heard a car roaring up her street.

"Someone came up and flipped a U at our house going really fast," said Bullock. "Suddenly he came back, parked across the street, hitting our garbage cans and the car and he got out on his phone look at his phone, got in his car and sped off and from there we turned the scanner on and we heard there was a high-speed chase."

Moments later, it appears the same car, a silver Honda Civic, flew off the freeway on Westbound 780 near the Glen Cove exit and went airborne, hitting a tree and killing the driver instantly.

It came to rest down an embankment, next to a small business.

Cheryl Martin was on the freeway just seconds behind the car that crashed.

"I was just getting off 780," said Martin. "I saw some smoke and then heard a horrible noise, a big bang."

A CHP officer at the scene told ABC7 News the driver of the car was a suspect in a crime spree that began earlier in Vallejo.

Vallejo police have yet to confirm witness reports that the Honda was being pursued by their officers in the moments before the crash.

It's unclear if the Vallejo units were still in pursuit when the deadly crash happened.

"I'm sad," said Martin, That's somebody's child and he died alone."

The CHP is investigating the accident itself. Vallejo police have yet to respond to numerous requests for comment and more information on what led up to the fatal crash.

Fatal Crash on Redwood Street in Vallejo

Details of the Deadly Vallejo Accident

On the morning of Friday, July 30, 2021, a 59-year-old man was killed, and another person was injured in a two-car crash that occurred on Redwood Street in Vallejo, according to city police.

The crash happened at approximately 5:00 a.m. when the now-deceased man was traveling west on Redwood in the vicinity of the 2600 block. He suddenly executed a turning maneuver and collided with the other involved vehicle, according to the police report. He was transported to an area hospital where, sadly, he was pronounced dead. His identity has not yet been released, pending notification of his family by the Solano County Coroner’s Office.

The driver of the second vehicle was injured and received medical treatment. That driver has been fully cooperative with authorities during the crash investigation. Given the released facts, it sounds like the second driver found himself in the situation of an unavoidable accident. 

This tragic incident brings the number of fatal crashes in Vallejo during 2021 to nine.

Investigation of the Redwood Street Crash Continues

Vallejo police continue to seek information on what led to this fatal accident. Anyone who has further information is asked to call (707) 648-4011 and speak with Officer Trimble. 

Causes of Early Morning Accidents

There is no further information available at this time as to the cause of this tragic accident. It is unknown why the now-deceased driver suddenly turned in front of another vehicle. Perhaps he suffered a medical event, or he was driving while fatigued. Many crashes that occur during late night and pre-dawn hours are at least partially caused by drowsy driving. 

Road Danger – The Unavoidable Accident

With the facts available, it sounds like the injured driver was unable to avoid the collision when the first driver executed an unexpected turning maneuver. The idea of this type of accident is frightening. We always want to believe that we can maintain some sense of control that will help to keep us safe on the roads. This is not always the case. Erratic moves by another driver may send a vehicle into your path and leave you zero reaction time to avoid a crash. 

What to Do After an Unavoidable Accident

The time immediately after an unavoidable accident when you had no time to react can be terrifying. Your nervous system is likely in overdrive. Adrenaline produced by panic may be coursing through your veins. This protective and defensive reaction from your body, while useful to our overall survival as a species, can mask pain and make you unaware that you have suffered injuries. In this Vallejo accident, the injured driver received immediate medical treatment – and that is always the right thing to do after a significant car crash. Even if your injuries are not severe enough to warrant ambulance transport, it is wise to undergo a thorough trauma evaluation by a physician as soon as possible following the impact.
