FAIRFIELD — An early afternoon crash on westbound Interstate 80 near the North Texas Street exit backed up traffic for a short time and ended in the arrest of a 20-year-old Vacaville man.
Jorge Marabilla was driving his GMC Yukon in the No. 3 lane when he rear-ended a Toyota RAV4 with a family of three inside, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Jody Holmes.
Marabilla increased his speed to get away from the crash, Holmes said. He then lost control of the Yukon while trying to exit at North Texas Street. The vehicle rolled and came to rest in a ditch.
CHP officers said they found drug paraphernalia in the Yukon, Holmes said. Marabilla was arrested at the scene on suspicion of fleeing from the scene of a crash and unspecified drug offenses.
No one was injured.
The accident happened just before 2 p.m., causing some afternoon motorists to exit the freeway and use Lyon Road to reach Fairfield.
