Fatality Reported in Highway 29 Accident 

One person was killed in a crash that resulted from a wrong-way driver in Napa on Saturday night. 

Per reports, the accident took place around 11:30 p.m. on Highway 29. 

A southbound vehicle was traveling in the northbound lanes when it crashed into four other vehicles. 

One driver died at the scene as a result.

There were also two other drivers and two passengers who sustained undisclosed injuries. 

The injured parties were transported to Providence Queen of the Valley Medical Center and Kaiser Permanente Vacaville. 

A 60-year-old woman was also airlifted to a hospital for treatment. 

CHP shut down the northbound lanes of the Highway for hours after the crash. 

An active investigation remains underway.

Although crashes involving wrong-way driving account for only 3% of motor vehicle accidents, they usually have a higher fatality rate as they are often head-on collisions. A study in Virginia concluded that those accidents which include wrong-way driving are twenty-seven times more likely to end in a fatality compared to other types of accidents. 

If your injuries are caused by the negligence of a third party you may be entitled to compensation. In the event of a death, families may be entitled to wrongful death benefits.
