1 Injured in Multi-Vehicle Crash on Silverado Trail near Oak Knoll Avenue
NAPA, CA (July 27, 2020) – 19-year-old Marina Maher of Napa suffered major injuries in a four-vehicle accident on Silverado Trail.
The California Highway Patrol said the crash happened north of Oak Knoll Avenue at around 3:30 p.m. It involved a BMW driven by Maher, a van driven by 45-year-old Francisco Garcia of Napa, a pickup truck driven by 40-year-old Arnoldo Villegas of Fairfield, and a car driven by 59-year-old Ismael Caro of Vallejo.
The van was southbound on the Silverado trail when it swerved into the path of the northbound BMW. Maher swerved onto the shoulder to avoid a collision but lost control of the vehicle.
As a result, the BMW spun into the southbound lane into the path of the pickup truck. Villegas, who was driving the pickup truck, tried to avoid a collision by slowing down. The BMW then slammed into the front of the pickup which, in turn, crashed into the car.
Maher sustained major injuries and was transported to Queen of the Valley Medical Center. No other person reported any injuries.
The CHP said all those involved in the accident had their seat belts on. At this time, the officials do no suspect that impairment played a role in the crash. The investigation is ongoing.
