Fatal Two-Vehicle Crash on Broadway and West Wabash Avenues
Fairfield, CA (December 3, 2020) – A head-on crash on Broadway and West Wabash Avenues left one person dead on Wednesday.
The fatal crash happened on December 2 at about 10:10 p.m. on Broadway and West Wabash Avenues.
Eureka Police Department responded to the scene after receiving reports of an injury crash. In a report, the crash involved a white sedan and a white pick-up both still in the intersection when the police arrived.
According to the preliminary investigation, both vehicles were stopped at a red traffic light. The sedan was northbound on Broadway at West Wabash Avenue and the pick-up was eastbound turn lane of southbound Broadway.
When the traffic light turned green for the pick-up, the sedan also started driving northbound into the intersection. As a result, both vehicles crashed head-on.
One person performed CPR on the 62-year-old driver of the sedan who was on the ground after the crash. Officers then took over and transported the woman to St. Joseph’s ER where she later died.
Humboldt County Coroner’s Office is withholding the release of the deceased victim’s identity, pending notification of next-of-kin. Furthermore, it is unknown whether drugs, alcohol or an underlying medical condition contributed to her involvement.
