Accident involving alleged drunk driver kills woman near Fairfield

An 18-year-old woman died Saturday night on Interstate 80 just outside Fairfield after an alleged drunk driver crashed into the broken down car she was standing next to, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The CHP news release said Marc Crawley, 46, of Suisun City, was driving a 1968 Ford Mustang eastbound on I-80 when he lost control of the car and drifted onto the right shoulder east of the Pittman Road exit. His car hit the disabled vehicle, which slammed into Dujuan Pines, 34, and an 18-year-old female, who were outside the car, the release said.

Crawley’s vehicle returned to the highway and crossed all lanes of traffic before hitting the center median and coming to a rest in the far-left lane, the release said. The CHP said Crawley was found to be intoxicated during the investigation into the accident.

All three people involved in the accident were taken to NorthBay Medical Center in Fairfield with major injuries. The woman later died after being airlifted to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, the release said. The CHP did not identify the woman.

Crawley was placed under arrest for gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and taken to Solano County Jail, the release said.
