FAIRFIELD — A 72-year-old Suisun City man is under investigation for allegedly driving under the influence after a head-on collision that sent him and eight others to local hospitals, police said.

The man was traveling eastbound on Waterman Boulevard near Hilborn Road when the truck he was driving sideswiped one van heading westbound before colliding head on with another van also traveling westbound, according to Sgt. Matt Thomas. The 72-year-old and eight other people were sent to area hospitals, none with life-threatening injuries, Thomas said.

The crash occurred about 6:45 p.m. when the solo driver of the truck traveled into the opposite lane, Thomas said. The two vehicles that collided came to rest in the westbound lane.

Emergency crews and police blocked one lane of Waterman Boulevard and set up in the center divide. Traffic was backed up in both directions for more than an hour. California Highway Patrol also temporarily shut down the off ramp to Waterman on westbound Interstate 80.
