High-speed crash injures 3

By January 21, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Two men and one woman suffered what appeared to be life-threatening injuries Monday after the red Mitsubishi Mirage they were in smashed into a concrete barrier.

The crash happened about 2:50 p.m. on westbound Cordelia Road near Hale Ranch Road.

The car was traveling at a high rate of speed on a portion of Cordelia Road that has been closed for several months. Sgt. Matt Bloesch of the Fairfield Police Department said it was too early to determine how fast the car was traveling.

Air bags deployed in the two front seats.

The three were transported via ambulance to local trauma centers. Two had to be extricated by the Fairfield Fire Department.

A third, a male, was found outside the car, sitting on the concrete wall when police arrived.

“He was dazed,” Bloesch said.

Bloesch said police received several 911 calls about the crash. Witnesses indicated there was just one car involved, he said. Police expected to be on the scene for a few hours to reconstruct the accident scene.

“We’re looking at everything,” Bloesch said.

Traffic was not affected, since the road was already closed in the crash area.
