Light rain factor in Fairfield car crashes

By From page A6 | June 25, 2013

FAIRFIELD — The light rain was a factor in two single-car crashes that occurred one after the other Monday afternoon on Air Base Parkway and Highway 12 that injured one person, according to Fairfield police.

The driver of a blue Kia Sorento was sent to the hospital with minor injuries after Fairfield firefighters pulled her out of her car that had plunged into a ditch shortly after 2 p.m. on the southeast corner of Highway 12.

The driver told police that she was trying to turn from southbound Pennsylvania Avenue onto Highway 12 when she lost control of her car due to what she said was a slick road.

Across town, the driver of Chevrolet Caprice lost control of his car while trying to make the turn from southbound Dover Avenue to Air Base Parkway, only to lose control and plow into the landscaping on the northwest corner of the intersection.

The driver was not injured, according to police.
