Clarksburg, CA (June 22, 2024) – The California Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal collision on Friday, June 21, in southwest Sacramento County.

The crash was reported about 6:15 a.m. in the area of Highway 160, also known as River Road, and Scribner Road, just east of the Sacramento River near the town of Clarksburg. One vehicle heading north reportedly crashed, went down an embankment, and struck a tree, according to CHP online dispatch records. It’s unclear how many people were in the vehicle, and police did not say how many drivers were involved in the incident. Officials at the CHP’s South Sacramento office were not immediately available Friday afternoon to provide additional details about the crash. However, the accident is still under investigation, and the events leading up to it remain unclear. Any witnesses were asked to contact the CHP.

Our deepest condolences are with the deceased victim’s loved ones. Our thoughts are with the injured victims in hopes of their full recovery.

Deadly Car Accidents in California

Catastrophic, fatal auto accidents occur much too frequently on California’s highways. Because the use of passenger vehicles for commuting, errands, travel, and beyond is so commonplace, people often overlook the possibility of serious or deadly auto accidents, which masks the inherent risks associated with them. As a result, far too many drivers who get behind the wheel may engage in risky behaviors like speeding, driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs, driving while distracted, or otherwise indulging in other careless or reckless activities.

Every year, car accidents on American roadways cause millions of injuries and thousands of fatalities, and the Golden State is no exception to these grim statistics.
