FAIRFIELD — A head-on crash during the Wednesday afternoon rush hour commute on Highway 12 in the Jameson Canyon killed one person and seriously injured three other people.

Three cars were involved in the 5:45 p.m. crash that left one car in a ditch and another car so seriously damaged that the car’s engine was slammed into the passenger compartment.

A doctor who drove past the crash scene stopped and tried to provide first aid to the most seriously injured crash victim. With the victim lying on the ground, the doctor performed CPR while CHP dispatchers ordered a pair of air ambulances to fly to the crash scene.

One of the air ambulances was canceled after the victim died. The second air ambulance flew another crash victim to the John Muir Medical Center. A pair of ambulances each took an injured crash victim to hospitals in the area.

Identities of the crash victims were not available.

Shortly after California Highway Patrol officers arrived on the crash scene, Highway 12 was shut down to traffic both at the junction of Interstate 80 and in Napa County at the junction of Highway 29.

After more than an hour, Highway 12 was reopened to one-way controlled traffic. Both lanes were not reopened until after 8 p.m.

    My condolences to the families of the injured. We were just heading back to Suisun City 45 minutes before the crash. Glad we didn't stop in Napa for dinner like we had planned. We had a 24 foot long trailer we had just bought....kinda hard to turn that thing around in that situation.

    I was driving ease on 12 leaving Napa around 5:15. By the time I arrived near Chardonnay GC the traffic was at a standstill, not unusual. We crawled along, I called my husband at 5:47 saying something is dreadfully wrong with traffic virtually stopped and then immediately seeing 6 or 7 cars stopped on shoulder just past county line on north side. No one was in their cars! Then I looked to the right side and saw all the carnage and lots of onlookers. Clearly saw CPR being administered to a victim, thank goodness for that doctor being there; people were are all around, lg pickup upside down, 2nd car about 30' away undistinguishable. I did not see a 3rd car. According to reports accident happened 2-3 min earlier. I was amazed there were no emergency vehicles. Not until i reached Red Top did i see first CHP then 2 fire engines and other law enforcement. Ap 6-7 passed me within that short stretch and no ambulances! I wondered why nothing came from the Napa side. That is a horrible road. When there is an erratic driver there is nowhere to go. It would have been worse if it weren't for a large open grassy area where the vehicles landed unlike most of the road where there is virtually no shoulder. Prayers to the victims and familes. Drive safe, be vigilent for that other driver's bad behavior or in this case the guy was having a heart attack. Enjoy each day, you don't know how you world may change on your drive home.
