Willows man dies in accident
Willows police are investigating the Sunday traffic death of a young Willows man.
Fabian Guitierrez, 23, was found dead inside an overturned car in a ditch at the corner of County Road 57 and Highway 99 west, Chief Jason Dahl said.
Officers responded to a call around 7:24 a.m. Sunday from a witness who said he saw a vehicle in a drainage ditch at that location, Dahl said.
Two officers responded and found a green 1994 Honda Civic upside-down on the far edge of a culvert along the southwest corner of the intersection, he said.
Officers entered the water in an attempt to find victims. They found Guitierrez inside the vehicle and believed he was the driver, Dahl said.
He was determined to be dead at the scene, the chief said.
The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
