The atmospheric river storm pummeling the Bay Area turned deadly on Wednesday, killing a teenager in Solano County and a baby in Sonoma County.

An unidentified 19-year-old resident of Fairfield died in a single-vehicle collision on Vanden Road at One Lake Drive in Fairfield on Wednesday morning, according to officials. The road was partially flooded due to the heavy rains.

Witnesses told Fairfield police that the victim hydroplaned and lost control of her car while traveling eastbound on Vanden Road and ran into a utility pole.

In Sonoma County, a toddler was killed Wednesday evening when a redwood tree fell on his home on Joy Road in Occidental. Reports said emergency personnel at the scene tried to revive him but were unsuccessful.

This is a developing story.
