SACRAMENTO, California — A traffic collision resulted in two parties killed and one man severely injured on Interstate 5 freeway.
A Fox 40 news article identified the victims as 26-year-old George Cooper and 29-year-old Dwayne Zachary.
In the morning of February 18, multiple vehicles got involved in a mishap on the freeway near J Street exit.
Investigators learned the collision began at 7:25 a.m. when Sacramento County Sheriff’s attempted to perform a traffic stop on a Toyota Sienna on El Camino Avenue.
The driver failed to stop. As per the article, the police then ran the plates on the Toyota and realized the vehicle was reported stolen.
The pursuit led Toyota driver Cooper traveling northbound on the southbound lanes of 5 freeway at J Street offramp.
