Motorcycle Crash in Napa County

72- year-old Dominic Antonelli Airlifted After Crash

The victim’s identity of a fatal motorcycle accident that happened Saturday, August 21st has been released. 

72-year-old Dominic Antonelli collided head-on with a pickup truck on Highway 121 at about 10:54 a.m. 

CHP reports revealed that Antonelli was heading southbound when he drifted across the center median, right in the path of a northbound Ford Ranger.

The motorcyclist, Antonelli, was airlifted to Kaiser Permanente Vacaville Medical Center where he later died as a result of his injuries. 

In addition, the driver of the pickup truck, an unidentified 43-year-old man, walked away with no injuries. 

Investigators are actively working to seek any additional information that may be important.

The Fatal Analysis Reporting System (FARS) has found that: 

  • 75% of head-on crashes happen in rural areas
  • They are most common on two-lane highways
  • Failure in negotiating a curve on the road causes 23% of all fatal head-on collisions
  • 58% of head-on collisions result in a fatality

Additionally, approximately 80% of accidents involving a motorcycle result in injuries or death. 

Motorcycle accidents, according to the NHTSA, accounted for 14% of motor vehicle accident deaths in 2019. Motorcyclists should be fully aware of the safety challenges in which they face while riding on roads in California.
