An 18-year-old San Pablo woman was killed Saturday night after a suspected drunken driver lost control on Interstate 80 and collided with a disabled vehicle that the victim had been standing near, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The tragic crash was reported at 7:50 p.m. at the Cordelia Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Facility. The entire freeway was shut down, as victims were in the road and the crash scene was extensive, CHP officials said.

The preliminary investigation shows that 46-year-old Marc Crawley of Suison City was intoxicated when he lost control of his 1968 Ford Mustang and crashed into the disabled vehicle, a 1996 Ford Mustang. Two people, including 18-year-old Breanna McKneely of San Pablo,were struck by the disabled vehicle.

Crawley’s vehicle went onto cross all traffic lanes until it crashed into a center median and came to rest in the freeway.

All three people, including Crawley and McKneely, were taken to NorthBay Medical Center in Fairfield initially with major injuries. McKneely was subsequently flown to the University of California at Davis Medical Center, where she died from her injuries.

Crawley was arrested on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and felony driving under the influence, CHP said.
