Sacramento Man, 30, Identified as Victim
LOCATION: Elk Grove
DATE OF COLLISION: Wednesday, December 19th
December 27, 2018- According to the California Highway Patrol, Elliot Dean, 30, of Sacramento, has been identified as the man fatally injured following an auto accident last week.
Per the report put together by CHP, an SUV and two big rigs morning were involved in the collision which occurred on northbound Highway 99 at Sheldon Road.
At roughly 3:30 a.m., the driver of a maroon SUV ID’d as Elliot Dean, 30, of North Highlands, allegedly lost control of his vehicle as it veered across several traffic lanes before coming to rest.
Moments later, an oncoming big rig struck the SUV ejecting Dean who was then struck again by an alleged second big rig.
2 Big Rigs Involved in Fatal Accident
Following the aftermath of the wreck, Dean sadly did not survive and was pronounced dead at the scene.
It remains unclear whether or not the drivers of the involved big rigs stopped their vehicles or continued on away from the scene.
Following the wreck, all lanes on Highway 99 were completely shut down for over an hour before a single lane finally opened up as traffic was diverted into the center median.
At this time, California Highway Patrol officials are currently investigating the collision and will determine exactly what happened and who will be held liable.
No additional information has been provided as this story is still developing and will be updated pending the disclosure of new details.
*We offer our warmest of thoughts, our prayers, and condolences to the family members of Mr. Elliot Dean as they search for peace and comfort.
