 Fatal Crash Highway 101, East Washington Street in Petaluma

Woman, 90, Killed; Man, 48, Injured in 2-Vehicle Collision

PETALUMA, Calif. (Nov. 14, 2023) — An elderly Cotati woman died Monday afternoon in a Petaluma crash on Highway 101, just south of East Washington Street.

The deadly crash occurred at around 4:42 p.m. on Nov. 13th, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP officials reported the 90-year-old driver of a silver 2005 Honda CR-V was heading northbound on Highway 101 when she reportedly crashed into the back of a green Range Rover.

The deadly car accident occurred during stop-and-go traffic. Authorities believe the Honda was traveling at an unsafe speed when it slammed into the back of the slower-moving Range Rover. The Honda also caught on fire after the collision.

The elderly woman sustained major injuries and later died at a hospital. Additionally, the 48-year-old Petaluma man driving the Range Rover was taken to a hospital with minor to moderate injuries.

CHP investigators did not release the names of the woman who died or the injured man.
