One Killed and Two Injured in Accident on Sonoma Boulevard and Cherry Street intersection

VALLEJO, CA (January 4, 2018) – A multiple vehicle crash on Sonoma Boulevard on Thursday evening left 23-year-old Vallejo resident, Mario Soto-Landa, fatally injured.
He was sitting passenger in a black 2002 Honda Accord with a 22-year-old male driver from Vallejo. Witnesses say that a dark colored SUV (possibly a Dodge or Chevrolet), was traveling southbound on Cherry Street. It didn’t stop at stop sign on Sonoma Boulevard, and made a right turn onto Sonoma Blvd, where it almost crashed into the Honda.
To avoid colliding into the SUV, the 22-year-old driver swerved left, driving through the double yellow lines and into a silver 2018 Dodge Challenger that was going south. Both cars collided with parked cars, said Vallejo Police Lt. Michael Nichelini.
Ambulances and police arrived at the scene. Soto succumbed to his critical injuries and was pronounced dead. Driver of the Honda sustained major injuries, while the 23-year-old male driving the Dodge had minor injuries. Both were taken to a local hospital for medical treatment.
Soto-Landa was a son, father of three, uncle, and friend. A GoFundMe page was set up to help the victim’s family with funeral costs.
Investigation is ongoing, as authorities try to identify the mysterious SUV and its driver. Contact Officer James Melville of the Vallejo Police Department at (707) 648-4014 (case number 18-149), if you have any information on this fatal accident.
