Jason Newell, 41, Suspect in Amador County Fatal DUI Crash on Highway 88

AMADOR COUNTY, CA (June 14, 2021) – Authorities identified Jason Newell as the suspect of a fatal DUI crash on Highway 88 in Amador County.

The California Highway Patrol believed that the 41-year-old Stockton man was under the influence of alcohol when the wreck occurred on Sunday.

The incident began when Jason Anthony Newell was driving a 2015 Infiniti at a high rate of speed west on Highway 88 in Amador County.

A CHP officer tried to make an enforcement stop but Jason Newell continued and accelerated away. At the same time, a 2021 Acura was going east on the highway.

The speeding car passed westbound traffic over the double yellow lines, east of Eggiman Lane. In the process, the Infiniti slammed head-on into the Acura.

The two people riding the Acura and the passenger in the Infiniti died as a result of the collision. The occupants of the other cars involved sustained minor injuries following the wreck.

The names of the deceased and wounded victims have not been yet released. Meanwhile, paramedics took Jason Newell to the UC Davis with major injuries.

Authorities will arrest Jason Newell after his treatment and charge him with DUI. Officials forced Highway 88 to shut down in both directions for about eight hours following the wreck.
