SONOMA, CA (October 30, 2018) – Early Tuesday evening, one man was killed and another was injured in a two-vehicle accident on Old Redwood Highway. The deceased victim has not yet been identified, pending notification of next of kin.
 
According to the California Highway Patrol, the fatal collision took place just around 5:45 PM, just south of Limerick Lane outside of Windsor.
