SHELDON: Fatal Crash on Wilton Road, Near Grant Line Road (June 12)Couple Killed in Car Crash with Garbage Truck

WILTON, Calif. (June 12, 2018) — Patricia Pfister, 75, and Dennis Pfister, 82, both of Wilton, died following a head-on collision between their car and a garbage truck Tuesday afternoon at 10821 Wilton Road, just north of the Consumnes River, a California Highway Patrol report said.

The crash took place about 1:14 p.m. this afternoon, just southeast of Grant Line Road. The truck, which was transporting dead animals, swerved to avoid hitting the 2000 Toyota Avalon head-on and went off the road and down an embankment, trapping the 43-year-old driver.

Both occupants of the Toyota were trapped in their vehicle. The woman died at the scene of the crash, but Dennis Pfister was taken by ambulance to Kaiser South Sacramento where he later died.

The roadway was closed down in both directions as police investigated the crash between the 4-door sedan with major damage and the garbage truck. Roughly 90 gallons of diesel fuel was also spilled into the roadway.
