The California Highway Patrol has confirmed the victim of Monday morning’s fatal crash on Jamieson Canyon Road is a male.
“That is all the information I have at this time. The coroner is still at the scene,” CHP Officer Jaret Paulson said this afternoon.
The accident involved a Ford Escort, a Toyota Prius, a minivan and a CalFire big rig transporting a bulldozer.
Around 10:30 a.m., the solo driver of the Escort, the minivan with seven people and the single driver in the Prius were westbound on Jamieson Canyon two miles west of the Napa/Solano counties line. The CalFire big rig with its bulldozer was eastbound.
“We don’t know what happened yet, but the Escort crossed the double-yellow line and crashed into the CalFire truck,” Paulson said.
“The big rig crossed the road, hit a guard rail, then struck the Prius.”
The minivan, which was following the Escort, was also involved in the pile-up.
Eight people went to Napa and Solano hospitals with minor to moderate injuries, Paulson said. “The CalFire driver was not injured.”
Jamieson Canyon Road has been closed in both direction since the crash.
The road is expected to reopen around 9 p.m., according to the CHP.
