A 16-year-old Fairfield girl died when her truck struck a tree in
Fairfield early this morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.
          The Solano County coroner's office identified the girl as Savana
Price. She was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash at 5:44 a.m.
          Price was speeding in a 1998 Nissan Frontier south on Ramsey Road
north of Gold Hill Road in Fairfield when she crossed the northbound lane and

          The truck hit a dirt embankment and became airborne, traveled 60
feet and struck a tree, Parker said.

Parker said.
