Melvin Strong Sacramento Fatal DUI Car Crash at 18th and I Streets, December 24

LOCATION: Sacramento

DATE OF COLLISION: Monday, December 24th

December 24, 2018 – A 28-year-old man was killed after his vehicle was struck by a suspected DUI driver early Monday in the area of 18th and I streets, according to Sacramento Bee.

The fatality was identified as Melvin Kwaun Strong, of Vacaville.

Preliminary investigation revealed Strong was driving a gray Infiniti traveling west on I Street when a drunken driver apparently ran the stop sign and crashed into the left side of the Infiniti. The collision resulted in fatal trauma to Strong, who was sadly pronounced dead at a hospital.

Meanwhile, officials have also identified the suspect as Ivan Dimov. The man reportedly continued driving his white BMW following the initial crash, and ended up causing a chain-reaction collision involving as many as three parked cars.
