Man Killed in Head-On Crash - Sunday, March 6, 2016
A deadly accident took the life of a Sacramento man on Sunday, March 6, 2016, according to Sacramento police. The man, in his mid-30’s, was heading west on Main Avenue. It was approximately 6:30 p.m. on March 6th when he lost control of his car, a Honda Accord. He sideswiped a truck travelling in the lane parallel to him, crossed the median and smashed head-on into a Toyota Prius.
The 30-year-old male driver of the Accord was pronounced dead at the hospital. Police say there were three people in the Prius, two children and their mother, who were transported to an area hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The driver of the sideswiped truck complained of some neck pain but did not seek medical treatment.
Wet road conditions and excessive speed are thought to be contributors to the accident. Main Avenue, between Kelton and Pell Drives was closed while the scene was cleared. There is a pending investigation into this accident and it is possible more information could be released later.
