DIXON (CBS13) – A 16-year-old has died and two other teenagers were hurt in a crash in rural Dixon Wednesday night.
The scene was on Pedrick Road, north of Dixon Avenue.
According to California Highway Patrol, a 2004 Ford Mustang was speeding on Pedrick Road just before 9 p.m. when the driver – a 16-year-old Winters resident – lost control. The car swerved, went off the freeway, crashed into a tree and then flipped over.
Medics pronounced the driver dead at the scene. Two passengers – another 16-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl, both from West Sacramento – were able to get out of the car after the crash, but suffered moderate to major injuries. All three were wearing their seatbelts, CHP says.
Wednesday, the Solano County Coroner’s Office identified the teen killed as Winters resident Juan Aguirre.
Investigators say drugs or alcohol were not factors in the crash.
