Victims in Solano County head-on collision ID’d by coroner
Solano County, California – The identities of all four individuals who were killed in a collision on Wednesday in Rio Vista have been released by the office of the Solano County coroner.
20-year-old Jordon Colvin was the driver of the Honda that crossed into the opposite lane and collided with a Chevrolet Suburban that was carrying seven Mexican tourists. This collision claimed the lives of four people: Laura Poiret, who was in her early 70s and was a passenger in the Suburban; Lacy Conway and Erica Anderson, both 18 and passengers in the Honda; and Colvin.
Because several open containers of alcohol were discovered inside and around the Honda, the Rio Vista Police Department has a strong suspicion that alcohol played a role in the crash. According to the police, the final report from the coroner will establish whether or not the incident was a case of driving under the influence.
A report of a collision between vehicles on state Highway 12 between Summerset and Church roads was received at 8:12 p.m., and emergency crews were dispatched to the scene.
According to the findings of the initial investigation, the Honda was heading west on Highway 12 when it went off the road to the right, overcorrected, and then into the eastbound lane, causing a head-on collision with the Chevrolet. As a result of the impact, both the Honda’s driver and the passenger riding in the back seat were ejected from the vehicle.
The passengers from the Chevrolet were transported for treatment in a hospital and are currently in stable condition.
