CHP said one person was injured in the accident.

According to the report, Francisco Garcia, 45, of Napa was driving a van southbound when he drifted into the path of an oncoming BMW driven by Marina Maher, 19, of Napa.

Maher made an evasive measure to avoid the van but the BMW rotated into the path of a southbound pickup truck driven by Arnoldo Villegas, 40, of Fairfield.

The two vehicles collided and the impact pushed the pickup into a car driven by Ismael Caro, 59, of Vallejo .

CHP said Maher sustained major injuries and was transported to Queen of the Valley Medical Center.

Silverado Trail was closed between Oak Knoll Avenue and Yountville Cross Road for over two hours as a result of the collision.
