FAIRFIELD — A morning crash Wednesday at Highway 12 and Beck Avenue tied up traffic and sent two people to NorthBay Medical Center with injuries that were not life-threatening.

A white Chevrolet sedan was traveling northbound at about 9:08 a.m. on Beck Avenue and a burgundy Toyota Camry eastbound on Highway 12, Sgt. Sam Rowland said. One of the drivers apparently failed to yield to a red light and the two vehicles collided in the intersection, Rowland said.

Both vehicles contained only the drivers. Emergency crews had to cut off the door from the white Chevrolet sedan to reach the female driver, Rowland said. The white Chevrolet was hit on the driver’s side. Both drivers complained of pain.

The white Chevrolet was still extending into one lane of  westbound Highway 12 traffic shortly before 10 a.m., backing up traffic in that direction. Police directed traffic.

Witnesses to the crash can contact police to give information at 428-7524.

    Apparently? Fact is one did run it Why can't Fairfield and Suisun stop the red light runners on 12? Police cars were a presence once but I haven't seen them as a steady presence for years. Go to any intersection on 12 and admire the amount of rubber on the road If this is a Hwy why can't we get the Highway Patrol to stop it? No we will wait until a family with 6 kids get killed. What about Cameras on this stretch of 12?

    Bob, running red lights has become fashionable. We watch as three, sometimes as many as five cars go through most intersections around town. I joked about removing all stop signs and signal lights in the city. Might as well for all the good they do. Besides, nobody's watching anyway.

    @CD-add to the red light issue when someone actually stops at the the yellow or red light, but the drivers behind them had no intention to stop. thus another pile up.

    Gemma, I hear you! I actually do stop and I fear that happening when the front of the car behind me nose-dives and slams on their brakes. Disgusting!

    CD Brooks is right, I was almost taken out by of all things a Fairfield School Bus as it ran the red light on the highway 80 overpass on westbound Travis Blvd. the other day! Yes that's right a big yellow 30 passenger school bus, zoom right through the red light, not a yellow light, it was clearly RED! It's time to do something when School Buses are running red lights!

    I think one problem is that people on Hwy. 12 think they are on an interstate and do not even notice a traffic light. You're doing 50 mph then? OOOpppsss.......you just went through a light you didn't even notice...something about the placement of the lights. After the lights at Sunset and RR Ave. it just looks like 'big, wide highway.

    Do you notice the white Chevy has "CA EXEMPT" plates. Probably a county worker. SMH.
