FAIRFIELD — Officers were still piecing together what happened in a two-vehicle rollover accident Friday on Travis Boulevard at Clay Street.
When authorities arrived on scene just after 4 p.m., they found a gray late-model Toyota Tundra pickup truck on its side with heavy damage to the roof and a smashed windshield. A beige Honda Accord nearby had heavy front-end damage and the driver’s side airbag had deployed.
The Tundra came to rest on its driver’s side, facing east in the eastbound lanes of Travis Boulevard, while the Accord remained upright and came to rest facing south on Clay Street.
The crash forced police to block off both eastbound lanes of Travis Boulevard and route traffic through the neighborhood. Traffic backed up on westbound Travis as well with police closing off the left lane on that side.
A debris field of about 30 yards ran east from Clay Street along Travis Boulevard, with car parts in one front yard and shattered glass strewn across the lanes on Travis.
Fairfield Police Sgt. Sam Rowland said it was too early to know exactly what happened.
“The (community service officers) are taking the report and fault’s not going to be determined tonight,” Rowland said Friday. “Call it a two-vehicle, minor-injury collision.”
Rowland said three people were transported to David Grant Medical Center at Travis Air Force Base – one from the Honda and two of the Tundra’s three occupants.
“We’re not suspecting any alcohol, drugs. Just a standard accident,” Rowland said.
With the holidays approaching, he reminded people to be safe on the roads.
“It’s not worth it,” Rowland said.
