Vallejo Police Think Driver Had Medical Emergency Before Fatal Crash

VALLEJO (CBS SF) — Police believe a 61-year-old man who died after crashing into a parked car Saturday night in Vallejo may have had a medical emergency prior to the crash.

At 9:56 p.m. officers received a report of a crash in the 300 block of Illinois Street, according to police.

Upon arrival, officers located a Dodge Caravan that had crashed into a parked car. Inside, officers found an unresponsive man behind the wheel, police said.

Emergency personnel responded and transported the victim to a hospital, where he died, according to police.

After conducting a preliminary investigation, officers concluded the victim, a Vallejo resident, was driving westbound on Illinois Street when he apparently had a medical emergency, causing the vehicle to crash. The crash occurred at a low speed and both cars sustained minor damage, police said.

The victim’s identity has not yet been released, pending notification of his next of kin.

    This is why I always tell my millennial friends that these old farts should not be behind the wheel. They are just to dangerous to the rest of us.
    Take the bus or walk, but if you are over 55, please don’t drive.

      You are so right. Old farts like this one need to be in a senior facility and not roaming about the streets where the rest of us are trying to live life and get our freak on.
