By From page A9 | August 10, 2014

PETALUMA — The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports that a man was killed and three people injured, including two children, Friday night outside Petaluma when a large brick pizza oven towed by a catering van broke loose and careened into their car.

California Highway Patrol Officer Andrew Barclay says the silver Honda Accord, which contained two adults and two children, had been waiting to turn onto Lakeville Highway from Old Lakeville Road No. 3 about 7:30 p.m. when it was struck by the trailer carrying the pizza oven.

Barclay says the driver of the Honda, a male adult, died at the scene. A woman and a small boy, who were riding in the Honda, were taken by ambulance to a local hospital. The officer says a young girl, also in the Honda, was airlifted to Children’s Hospital in Oakland.

The Press Democrat reports that the CHP would not release the names of the people in the Honda or their relationship.
