Two men lost their lives in separate accidents on Yolo County roadways over the Veterans Day weekend, the California Highway Patrol reported Wednesday.

Both fatalities occurred hours apart on Sunday, starting at about 1:15 a.m. on southbound Interstate 5 near County Road 98 in Woodland, Officer Bryan Konvalin said.

There, 47-year-old Francisco Guillen Reyes of Woodland was walking in the middle of the freeway as the driver of a Subaru Outback was approaching him. Reports indicate Reyes either tried to run across the roadway or jumped into the vehicle’s path.

Konvalin said the driver, an 80-year-old Roseville man, swerved to the right but clipped Reyes, who struck the windshield and was thrown into the center divider. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

That night, a 22-year-old man died after being thrown from his car on County Road 89 north of County Road 31 near Winters.

According to Konvalin, Ricardo Murillo Rodriguez of Winters was traveling southbound at about 6:10 p.m. when for unknown reasons he turned to the left and lost control of his Acura Integra, which veered across the northbound lane and rolled over into a drainage ditch.

Rodriguez, who was not wearing a seat belt, suffered fatal injuries after being thrown from the car, Konvalin said.

Both Reyes and Rodriguez died of multiple blunt-force injuries, Yolo County Chief Deputy Coroner Robert LaBrash said Wednesday. He said his office is looking into whether alcohol or drugs were factors in their deaths.
