Alcohol suspected in Francisco Drive rollover

That loud crashing that Marina residents heard on Saturday night was Liza Lombardi rolling her 1995 Nissan Pathfinder off Francisco Drive near Marina Park Drive, according to information from the California Highway Patrol.

The 20-year-old woman was driving south on Francisco Drive when she reportedly  failed to negotiate a curve near Marina Park Drive just after 8 p.m., said CHP spokesperson Jasper Begay.

The Pathfinder overturned several times, taking out a street sign and two wooden fences, bouncing off a brick barrier before coming to rest in a back yard.

Lombardi was ejected from the vehicle and sustained major injuries, Begay said.

Officers at the scene placed her under arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol before she was flown to Sutter Roseville Trauma Center. Her condition is unknown at this time.

Longtime resident Harriet Segel heard the accident and called it “the biggest crash noise since we moved here 30 years ago.”
