SOLANO COUNTY, CA (MPG) - Jose Villegas Garcia, a 26-year-old Dixon man, died Sunday when his blue Honda Accord went off a roadway and into a canal southeast of Dixon, on Pedrick Road near Maine Prairie Road in Solano County according to the California Highway Patrol.

The fatal incident that investigators believe may have involved alcohol and/or drug impairment happened as the man was driving southbound on Pedrick and did not stop at the stop sign at Main Prairie Road, CHP Officer David Harvey said.

The Honda went through the intersection, over the dirt shoulder, and into a canal, where the front of the car hit the south embankment of the canal, Harvey said. The driver, who was alone in the car, was pronounced dead at the scene.

"Impaired driving is being investigated as the cause of this collision," Harvey said.

The CHP has not yet determined what time it was Sunday other than it was late at night when the fatal incident took place.

Anyone with information pertinent to the crash investigation is asked to contact the CHP Solano Area Office at 707-428-2100 and ask for Officer Burks, who is handling this investigation.
