1 Injured in Sonoma DUI Accident on Highway 121
SONOMA, CA (October 5, 2020) – Saturday afternoon, a woman suffered injuries in a crash involving Pedro Garcia on Highway 121.
The incident occurred just before 4:00 p.m. on Highway 121, south of Napa Road. According to reports, the unidentified woman drove a 1997 Toyota Corolla southbound at “an unknown speed.” Then, she went off the road and over-corrected back into the roadway. Then, she drove across the double-yellow lines and collided with a 2019 Ford E350 van head-on.
The 36-year-old van driver, Pedro Garcia of Fairfield, was uninjured. According to authorities, he wore a seatbelt during the crash. Moreover, the authorities do not believe that the weather played a role in the crash.
Meanwhile, responders transported the Corolla driver to Queen of the Valley Medical Center in Napa with major injuries.
