The Solano County coroner's office identified the driver who died when he drove the wrong way on Interstate Highways 80 and 680 Sunday night as 53-year-old Jeffrey Woodhouse of Fairfield.
Woodhouse was driving a 2009 Toyota Camry south on northbound Highway 680 when he collided head-on with a 2005 Hummer H2 near Marshview Road in Solano County south of Fairfield around 8 p.m., California Highway Patrol Sgt. Mike Lehman said.
Before the fatal collision, Woodhouse was driving west on eastbound Highway 80 near the Rio Vista-Suisun City state Highway 12 off-ramp in Suisun, CHP Officer Ralph Caggiano said.
Caggiano said Woodhouse drove the wrong way on the freeways for about nine miles.
A passenger in the Hummer complained of pain but the Hummer driver was not injured, Lehman said.
Woodhouse was pronounced dead at the scene at 8:25 p.m. Sunday, coroner's Deputy Jackson Harris said. Results of an autopsy on Tuesday will be pending toxicology tests, Harris said.
The collision closed northbound Highway 80 for 70 minutes, Lehman said.
