A Fairfield teenager died early this morning from injuries she sustained during a solo-vehicle traffic accident along Ramsey Road, north of Gold Hill Road.
The California Highway Patrol said the 16-year-old Fairfield girl, whose name was not release pending notification of next of kin, was driving a 1998 Nissan Frontier south on Ramsey Road at a high rate of speed.
The teenager drove her truck into the north lane of Ramsey Road and continued off the roadway, where she hit a dirt embankment and became airborne, according to the CHP. She continued another 60 feet before colliding with a tree.
Officers received a call about the accident at 5:22 a.m., and arrived on-scene shortly after. The girl sustained fatal injuries during the accident.
The CHP said she was not wearing a seat belt and was partially ejected from the truck. Police are investigating the cause of the accident and have not determined if drugs or alcohol played a part.
