Man Killed, Passengers Injured In Construction Zone Crash

One passenger managed to crawl out of the wrecked car, but the driver and another passenger had to be extricated by the Fairfield Fire Department, police said.

The driver of a car was killed Monday afternoon and his two passengers injured when he drove past a "road closed" sign and hit two concrete barriers in a Fairfield construction site this afternoon, police said.

The driver, identified as 33-year-old Paul Yamot of Fairfield, died at the hospital after the collision, which happened at about 2:50 p.m. on Cordelia Road near Hale Ranch Road.

Yamot drove through the road closed signs and hit the barriers just west of the railroad tracks there, where the road has been closed for months because of construction work, police said.

One passenger managed to crawl out of the wrecked car, but Yamot and another passenger had to be extricated by the Fairfield Fire Department, police said.

The passengers were identified as two Vallejo residents, a 36-year-old woman and a 37-year-old man. They were taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries but are expected to recover, police said.

Police have not determined wither speeding or alcohol were factors in the crash.

Anyone with information about the collision has been asked to call Fairfield police at (707) 428-7524.
