Vehicle Collision Near Highway 50 Results in Fatality
Sacramento, CA (August 23, 2023) – On Monday, 22-year-old Araceli Velazquez of Sacramento was killed in a rear-end collision on Highway 99.
The fatal collision took place near the Highway 50 junction.
Officers said Velazquez was a passenger in a northbound Toyota on the freeway traveling toward the interchange in Oak Park.
The 22-year-old man who was driving the Toyota got distracted and did not see that traffic ahead had slowed. As a result, the Toyota driver did not break in time and collided with a Peterbilt dump. The Toyota slammed into the left rear of the dump truck which resulted in major intrusion to the sedan.
