Coroner identifies man crushed to death in Yolo County crash

A passenger in a car that crashed into a field along a rural Yolo County Road has died, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Killed in the roll-over crash was Jose Luis Fierros, 25, of Winters.

The crash occurred about 6:50 a.m. Thursday morning along County Road 89 south of County Road 29 when Francisco Alberto Lopez Quezada, 24, of Winters was traveling with Fierros in a Ford Crown Victoria at a high rate of speed, according to a CHP press release.

The car was heading southbound on County Road 89 when Quezada allowed the car to drift to the right side of the road. He then over-corrected to the left, losing control.

The Ford crossed over the road, entered a drainage ditch and then struck an embankment before landing in a dirt field. The car rolled several times before landing on its wheels.

Fierros was partially ejected, causing his body to be crushed, according to the CHP.

Quezada suffered major injuries and was airlifted to UC Davis Medical Center.
