DIXON, CA (April 12, 2021) – Karen Maduena was hospitalized after a fatal DUI crash along the Interstate Highway 80 in Dixon.
The California Highway Patrol identified the 26-year-old Suisun City woman as one of the injured drivers in the wreck on Sunday morning.
The incident began when a black Mazda CX5 was traveling at a high rate of speed west on the Interstate 80, west of Dixon Avenue. Its driver, 31-year-old Larry Bowie, rear-ended a silver Hyundai Elantra.
Several people stopped at the crash site and helped the involved parties. A red Toyota Tacoma drove into the area and struck the silver Toyota Prius driven by Karen Maduena.

Medical personnel also transported them for treatment. Meanwhile, CHP determined that the man driving the Tacoma was under the influence of alcohol when the wreck happened.
