Deceased Body Discovered on Silverado Trail near Pratt Avenue
ST. HELENA, CA (September 30, 2019) – A man was found dead in his car Monday morning after driving off Silverado Trail south of Pratt Avenue.
The Napa County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as Cameron Thompson, 25, of Calistoga. He had been working as a cook at the Meadowood Napa Valley resort.
According to reports, Thompson was last seen leaving work around 2:30 a.m., on Saturday. Coworkers had become concerned when he failed to show up at work Saturday afternoon. They later reported him missing to the Napa County Sheriff’s Office.
Thompson was found around 9:00 a.m. Monday by a coworker who searched the area and discovered the crash 30 feet down an embankment. The car, a 2012 Volkswagen, had struck a tree.
The CHP said the car appeared to have veered to the left and across the southbound lane, colliding into a guardrail on the west shoulder. It became airborne and struck the tree below the roadway.
Silverado Trail was closed in both directions for several hours due to the accident, the California Highway Patrol reported. The road reopened shortly after noon.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
