ROHNERT PARK, CA (August 8, 2021) – Rick Barretta was hospitalized after a fatal car crash on Highway 101 in Rohnert Park.

The California Highway Patrol identified the 41-year-old man as one of the wounded parties in the collision which took place on Sunday.

The incident began when Rick Barretta was driving a Ford F-250 north on Highway 101 in Rohnert Park. At the same time, a gray Nissan stopped in the middle lane of northbound Highway 101 for an unknown reason.

CHP said the male driver exited the Nissan and stood beside it. The F-250 pickup approached the area and hit the rear of the stopped car, north of the Rohnert Park Expressway.

The impact pushed the Nissan into the pedestrian. The Press Democrat and KTVU News wrote that he landed on the road where a Ford F-150 struck him.

The man died at the scene. Rick Barretta and his three passengers sustained minor injuries as a result of the Rohnert Park crash.

Paramedics took the patients to the Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital for treatment. The wreck took place shortly after 4 a.m. The motorist in the F-150, 26-year-old Jorge Mendoza-Suarez, ended up unharmed.

Meanwhile, CHP forced the northbound lanes of Highway 101 to shut down for hours following the collision. The cause of the Rohnert Park crash is still under investigation.
