FAIRFIELD — A two-vehicle crash Tuesday on Air Base Parkway claimed the life of a Pittsburg man and sent another person to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Fairfield police Lt. Randy Fenn said the collision, on eastbound Air Base Parkway near Wiley Lane, was reported at 6:56 p.m. Officers responded and discovered the two vehicles, each with one occupant.

One driver, Quincy Jones, 38, of Pittsburg, was declared dead at the scene, Fenn said. The other driver was transported by ambulance to a local hospital.

Details were few as to the circumstances surrounding the crash.

“It’s pretty early at this point. Fairfield PD traffic investigations is on scene and doing a full workup on it,” Fenn said. “We don’t know if speed was a factor or alcohol or anything like that. Those are things of course that we’re going to be looking at.”

Fenn said the area was being treated as a crime scene – standard procedure with a traffic fatality – and traffic was blocked off at Walters Road.

Flares and police vehicles directed eastbound vehicles north onto Huntington Drive. The road remained closed for several hours.

It’s the third fatal crash in the area since Sunday.

Just before noon Monday, a woman was killed when her car drifted off Leisure Town Road in Vacaville and slammed into a utility pole. The driver was ejected and the car ended up on its roof in a creek bed near the roadway.

Sunday afternoon, 31-year-old Ronald Brackett of Fairfield was killed in a two-vehicle crash at Lopes Road and Canyon Hills Road.

Brackett’s northbound vehicle was struck by an oncoming car, the driver of which was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries. Witnesses to that crash told police that the vehicle that hit Brackett’s car may have been involved in a street race with a black Toyota Tundra, which left the scene.

Police are still seeking the identity of the Tundra’s driver.

    FF64, alluded to this the other day. More people seem to be getting killed in accidents and with all the info and technology we have it doesn't make sense. Condolences to all the families and friends for their loss.

    CD Brooks, your comment is SO true. Most accidents can be prevented with accident prevention sensors! But you have to lobby officials to require such technology installed in our cars, and that is something we as parents, friends, and communities are not doing! Quincy and the rest of the family… I will fight for those voices that have been silenced from road traffic accidents! Until we meet again my Burton Block Brother!!! www.facebook.com/StopStopStopAMF
