The accident occurred at 3:46 p.m. at the intersection of South Fifth Street and West Washington Avenue. A vehicle driven by Joe Zapata, 22, of Fairfield, was southbound on Fifth Street. Zapata failed to yield upon entering the intersection with Washington, and struck a vehicle driven by Shelvia Spalla, 77, of rural Fairfield.
