VACAVILLE — A 17-year-old Fairfield boy was killed Wednesday night in a traffic accident at Ulatis Drive and Arcadia Drive.

The crash happened at about 10:38 p.m. The victim had been traveling east on Ulatis Drive and veered across into the westbound lane for unknown reasons. He hit the curb and went flying from the motorcycle, according to a Vacaville Police Department press release.

An ambulance brought the victim to the Kaiser Permanente Vacaville Medical Center’s trauma center, where he died. Police did not release the identity of the teen. The press release came out at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, by which time the Solano County Coroner’s Office had stopped taking phone calls for the day.

Police urge anyone who witnessed the incident or has information about it to call Officer Chuck Bailey at 449-5200.
