The crash was first reported at 2:17 p.m. in the vicinity of Rohnert Park Expressway and Country Club Drive.

Emergency crews found a 2000 Toyota Sienna in the eastbound lanes of Rohnert Park Expressway that had crashed into a tree in the median and spun around before coming to rest in a turn lane.
