Tow Truck Driver Dead in Afternoon Rollover Crash on Highway 16 in Woodland
WOODLAND, CA (November 12, 2019) – A Woodland man died in a rollover crash Tuesday afternoon in Yolo County, authorities said.
The crash happened around 4:04 p.m. on Highway 16 at County Road 94B.
According to the California Highway Patrol, a Davis woman in a 2015 Subaru crossover stopped at the stop sign, then attempted to drive south across the intersection to continue on County Road 94B.
The driver of a 2020 International tow truck was unable to avoid the car crossing the road in front of him. The front of the Subaru collided with the back left of the tow truck, which continued eastbound.
The tow truck then went off the roadway and into a ditch, where it overturned on its roof. The tow truck driver suffered fatal injuries as a result of the crash.
CHP officials did not release the identity of the victim pending notification of his family members.
The Davis woman suffered minor injuries and said she would seek medical care on her own, according to the CHP.
