A landslide that occurred this evening along State Highway 121 in
unincorporated Napa County reportedly caused a vehicle crash that killed one
person, California Highway Patrol officials said.

The incident was reported at just after 5 p.m. near State Highway
121, also known as Monticello Road, and Wild Horse Valley Road.

The crash involved a vehicle that went down an embankment and
struck a tree, according to the CHP.

“The hill is too unstable to retrieve the vehicle and driver,” CHP
officials said on social media.

Highway 121 has been closed in both directions between Vichy
Avenue and Wooden Valley Road and CHP officials estimate the highway won’t
reopen until sometime Wednesday morning. Drivers are being asked to use
alternate routes.
