Katie Anderson, Dixon teacher, killed in roll-over truck accident

Dixon is mourning the death of Katie Anderson (31), a math teacher at C.A. Jacobs Middle School, as a result of a car accident early Sunday morning in Fairfield, which also took the lives of two others.
Katie joined the staff at C.A. Jacobs three and a half years ago and quickly established herself as a favorite among students. She loved her students and supported them in every way a teacher could. She was excellent in her work and delightful as a person, and her loss will be felt deeply by all who had the chance to know her.
The District opened the C.A. Jacobs campus Monday morning , June 8th to provide students, parents, and staff a place to gather and remember Katie, and receive support from our counseling staff, if desired. Please encourage anyone who could benefit from the chance to gather and remember Ms. Anderson, as well as receive some support, to join us.
The accident occurred after midnight Sunday morning, June 7 at 12:25 am. Three people died in the incident, Katie Anderson, Regina Dixon (31) of Fairfield; and Chad Romine (29) of Vacaville. Gregory Anderson (25) also of Fairfield was seriously injured and was taken to Northbay Medical Center in Fairfield.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the four were in a pick-up truck heading west on I-80. The truck took the Manuel Campos Parkway exit at a high rate of speed. The driver was unable to make the curve in the off-ramp, ran off the road and overturned.
Two of the victims were ejected from the vehicle, indicating they may not have been wearing seatbelts. The other two were trapped trapped in the vehicle.  The CHP has not yet identified which victim was driving, nor which two were ejected.
The off-ramp was completely closed for about three and a half hours during investigation of the accident, but there was little effect on traffic.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the CHP Solano Office at (707) 428-2100.
Information on memorial services will be provided by the Dixon school district as soon as it becomes available.
