CHP: Lost control on highway while driving too fast in heavy rain

The Sonoma County Sheriff's Office has identified a man who died in a collision in unincorporated Sonoma County on Wednesday afternoon as Malachi Hussain, 25, of Livermore.

Hussain was driving a 2014 Nissan at an unsafe speed during heavy rain around 2:50 p.m. south on Highway 121 north of Napa Road, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Hussain lost control of the Nissan and crossed solid double yellow lines directly into the path of a northbound 1996 Dodge truck driven by a Fairfield man, CHP officials said.

The occupants of both vehicle were wearing seat belts and the CHP is investigating whether drugs or alcohol were factors in the collision.
