The crash was reported at about 1:45 p.m. on westbound Highway 80 near Cherry Glen Road, CHP Officer Ron Simmons said.

According to preliminary information, a tree appeared to have fallen into the roadway, partially obscuring the far right lane, according to the CHP.

A vehicle driving in that lane crashed into the tree, killing one occupant, Simmons said.

The Solano County coroner responded to the scene.
