Fatal Dixon Pedestrian Accident Interstate 80; Sacramento Teenager Killed

Teen Struck by Semi-Truck on I-80 Freeway in Dixon

 Fatal Dixon Pedestrian Accident Interstate 80; Sacramento Teenager Killed DIXON, Calif. (June 22, 2021) — A fatal Dixon pedestrian accident happened early Sunday on the Interstate 80 Freeway.

The fatal crash happened about 12:48 a.m. on June 20th, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Police say a collision involving a red Freightliner truck resulted in the death of a 17-year-old Sacramento girl as she stood on the shoulder of the freeway. The westbound truck came upon an earlier collision and couldn’t stop.  It collided with several vehicles before hitting the teenager.

The Solano County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as Tiana Hawkins, 17, according to the East Bay Times. Hawkins had been a passenger in a vehicle involved in the prior collision. She got out of that vehicle and stood on the right shoulder before the second multi-vehicle crash.

Investigators are piecing together what happened and liability. At this point, it’s unknown if speed was a factor in the crash involving the truck and pedestrian. Additionally, authorities will look through the truck driver’s Hours of Service records. The HOS log shows the maximum amount of time truck drivers are allowed to work. Specifically, it logs their driving time and mandatory rest periods to ensure they remain awake and alert on the roadway.

Witnesses to this collision should contact Officer Anthony Wheeler at 428-2100.
