FAIRFIELD, CA – A Sacramento woman was arrested in Fairfield for suspicion of DUI on Sunday morning following a three-car crash that killed two victims and left two others injured.
Michelle Henry, 42, was arrested after rear-ending an SUV on Interstate 80 shortly after 5 a.m. The crash caused the vehicle to spin out of control due to the high speed at which Henry was traveling.
Henry’s 2008 Buick Lucerne hit a 1997 Ford Explorer, driven by Anthony Andrade, 33. The impact caused Andrade to lose control of his vehicle, and the vehicle overturned, coming to a stop on its roof.
Henry’s car flipped a number of times and also come to a rest on its roof.
Andrade and his front-seat passenger, Floyd Williams, Jr., jumped out of the vehicle and tried to free the third occupant in the car, Vincente Santos, 25. As this was happening, a third vehicle, driven by Michael Soto, 35, crashed into Andre and then into the vehicle itself.
Both Andrade and Santos were killed in the incident. Williams and Soto were transported to local hospitals to be treated for minor injuries.
Authorities are trying to determine whether the first accident was connected to the second. Henry was taken to NorthBay Medical Center where she was treated for minor injuries and later arrested for suspicion of felony DUI causing injury as well as for possession of a loaded firearm in her vehicle.
