FAIRFIELD — A two-vehicle car crash in southwest Fairfield left a man dead and another injured Sunday night.

Crews responded to an accident about 5:15 p.m. on Lopes Road at Canyon Hills Drive where a driver was reported unconscious.

Fire responders declared a man dead at the scene, Lt. Randy Fenn said. The driver of another car was transported by ground ambulance to a local hospital with significant injuries.

Fenn said after an initial investigation it appeared that one vehicle was going southbound on Lopes Road and other was making a left turn off of Canyon Hills Drive onto northbound Lopes Road, and the vehicle going southbound hit the turning vehicle broadside.

A section of Lopes Road remained closed about 8:15 p.m. while the police department’s Traffic Investigations Unit worked the scene.

Fenn said police are investigating whether alcohol or speed were factors in the accident.

    Is it just me or are fatal collisions way up so far this year in Solano County?

    I believe the same thing. This year theres been quite a lot of car accidents, and several deaths. This actually scares me as a young driver. This happened so close to home. That could've been me. I live right on Summerset (The next street after Canyon Hills)

    SFGate is reporting that two vehicles were street racing and one of them hit a car that was pulling out of the subdivision. The driver from the subdivsion died and the driver of the car that hit him was seriously injured. The other street racing car left the scene.

    I was driving home and saw people, news and police out on that corner. So sad. So close to home. My prayers are with those who lost their loved one.

    RIP Ron.. Your 2 month old baby and family will miss you. Such a tragic ending to a young mans life. I can't wait until the driver of the black Tundra is brought to justice.

    There was a black tundra on the scene yesterday fairly new. I wonder if he came back to watch. I have video and the licence plates just in case.

    Ringo, one of the drivers fled the scene. It sounds like it was the truck you got video and a license plate for. Call the police right away!! You may have helped bring some justice and peace to this young man's very young family. He had a small baby. So sad.
