Expectant Father Dies in Chain-Reaction Crash

SOLANO COUNTY, CA (May 13, 2019) — A Suisun City man killed in a multi-vehicle, rear-end collision Wednesday on state Highway 12 in Fairfield has been identified by the Solano County Sheriff-Coroner's Office as Sun-Shawn Hill, 21 years old.

The California Highway Patrol reports just before 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, a white Mercedes Benz van rear-ended Hill’s Volkswagen Passat that was stopped at a light at Beck Avenue, causing a chain-reaction crash. In total, five cars were involved in the crash.

Hill was pronounced deceased at the scene. Two other people, including the driver of the van, were hospitalized.

The chain reaction was caused when the Volkswagen struck the rear of a gray Honda sedan, which hit a BMW sedan, which struck the back of an Audi sedan, CHP Officer David Harvey said.

Hill was an alumnus of Fairfield High School who loved playing basketball and hanging out with friends. He and his girlfriend were expecting a baby girl in July, his family said.

“He was very happy and always smiling,” said Denise Hill, the victim’s mother. “He was mature for his age.”

Hill originally planned on a career as a pharmacy technician, but last year he decided to become an iron worker and joined his local union.
