VACAVILLE (CBS13) – Vacaville police know that going hungry on Halloween night can bring out the ogre in anyone, that’s why they completed a DoorDash trip that had previously taken a dangerous detour.

On Oct. 31, a DoorDash delivery driver was heading to a customer’s Vacaville home when he got into an accident and couldn’t finish the job. That’s when Vacaville police stepped in to help and completed the delivery.
