Friends, Family of Savana Price Struggle With Loss

Savana Price, 16, of Fairfield died this morning in a solo-vehicle traffic accident. Friends and family are in shock and attempting to overcome the grief of losing a girl who had a bright future.

Savana Price had a bright future. She was looking forward to her senior year at Rodriguez High School but that dream was cut short by a tragic auto accident that took her life this morning.

Now, friends and family members are struggling to deal with the loss of Savana, and attempting to find answers about the accident that took her away.

Savana was a Rodriguez High School soccer player, she played on the team as a midfielder during her freshmen and sophomore years said Coach Vince Cowan.

"I knew her for three years, she was a junior, she played soccer," Coach Vince said. "She was a great kid. She was quiet, kind of kept to herself for the most part. By the end of the season she really opened up."

Coach Vince said that he was disappointed that Savana chose not to play soccer for the school during her junior year because she had tremendous skill.

"She was such a great player, when I did have her and I was really looking forward to her playing last season," Coach Vince said.

Coach Vince said he was in shock at hearing the news of Savana's death. Many of Savana's friends are also in a similar state.

"It’s so sad when we lose a young person, a good person you know?" said Coach Vince.

The California Highway Patrol said that Savana was driving a truck along Ramsey Road, just north of Gold Hill Road when she left the roadway and struck a tree.

The accident occurred shortly before 5:30 a.m., Friday according to the CHP. Savana sustained fatal injuries during the collision. The CHP is investigating the cause of the wreck and are asking anyone who may have witnessed the accident to contact them at (707) 428-2100.

Thank you Shannon, Ive always admired you and it was a pleasure to see Jordan and your father at her services. Call anytime and take care.

Thank you Leann, I am attempting to network with the Police Department and School Superintendant to utilize Savana's truck for a Scare Straight Program, one that is already being used in Vacaville, Benicia and Concord. It would be a great service if you could get me the contacts of these districts to follow up with? With much appreciation. Angela Williams

Such a sad story. I was on my way to work that day at 7:30 a.m when I saw the accident along the side of the road. It looked like to me that someone on that property has just stumbled upon this when they were out tending to their horses. The cops were there and it looked like they were trying to figure out what happened. I don't know why, but that scene stayed with me for day and weeks, till finally I looked it up on the internet to see what it was. It's such a tragedy. She was so young. I don't even know this young girl, but I think about her everyday when I go by the scene of the accident, on my way to, and from work. May she rest in peace and may her parents find a way to heal from the devastation of losing a child. My prayers are with you and your family & friends. LP lbportillo@gmail.com

Dearest Coach Vince, Thank you for reflecting a Real Part of Savana. She si have tremendous skills in soccer and I too regret she didn't play her Junior year. If she had even 1/2 the passion left that she had skill in time with a coach like you, I believe you could have brought the fighter back on the field and her 1 time dream of playing "College Ball" would have happened. So thank you again for all you contribute to the children in the community. Please give my best to your family & I do miss the Mrs' cookies. Respectfully Angela Williams

Angela, I actually did a search on you to see if you were on Facebook and came across this horrible news. We worked together at Redwood Credit Union years ago when your oldest was just a little girl. I am so sad that your beautiful daughter passed on. I saw her picture and saw you. This is every parents nightmare and I'm so sorry this is now your reality. She was gorgeous! This certainly is not what I wanted to find when I did a search on you. My heart goes out to you. I'm sure your Savana is dancing away and watching over you.... Stacy Dunning (Stacy Spurlock)
