VALLEJO, CA - On May 19, 2024, at approximately 7:50 PM, the Vallejo Police Department received a call about an injury collision involving two vehicles on Curtola Parkway west of Lemon Street.

Upon arrival, officers observed assisting motorists performing CPR on the driver of a 2003 Nissan 350Z.

Despite the efforts of medical personnel, the victim succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The initial investigation revealed that the 2003 Nissan 350Z was traveling eastbound on Curtola Parkway.

The Nissan ultimately collided with a 2018 Honda CRV, which appeared to be traveling westbound on Curtola Parkway.

There were two occupants in the Nissan and one occupant in the Honda. The adult female passenger in the Nissan was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. The adult male driver of the Honda was also transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The identity of the deceased is being withheld pending notification of next of kin by the Solano County Sheriff Coroner's Office.
