SACRAMENTO, California — According to an article by Sacramento CBS, one man died and another suffered injuries following a series of collisions on Highway 50 Wednesday early morning.
On March 1 a little after midnight, California Highway Patrol said a car heading east on the freeway crashed into the south guardrail for unknown reasons. The vehicle came to a rest with the driver’s side facing oncoming traffic, as per the article.
Then, the driver of a second car about to exit at Howe Avenue did not notice the wreck, and ended smashing against the driver’s door area of the first vehicle. The second collision knocked out the first vehicle’s engine, and pushed it through the fifth lane of the highway.
The third impact happened on the fifth lane where a third car struck the initially totaled vehicle.
Paramedics arrived shortly and located the driver of the first vehicle unconscious. The man, briefly described as a 22-year-old Carmichael resident, was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Further, the driver of the second car was found by emergency crews in pain. He was immediately provided treatment for sustained injuries of minor severity, as per Sacramento CBS.
Fortunately, the third driver escaped without harm, officials said.
The California Highway Patrol group is conducting separate investigations on the three collisions. Officers said they have not yet ruled out involvement of drugs and alcohol on the deadly car accident.
The Johnson Attorneys Group’s prayers and thoughts rest with the family members and friends of both the deceased and injured.
