Placerville, CA (March 06, 2021) – On Saturday, 47-year-old Michael Cranfill II of Sacramento, and 57-year-old James Biggane of Carmichael, were injured in a rollover crash on Highway 50.
The fatal crash took place at around 10:48 p.m. near Placerville Drive.
Cranfill was driving a 1995 Nissan XEV6 westbound at an unknown speed with Carmichael in the passenger seat.
For reasons under investigation, Cranfill’s vehicle drifted to the right and off the roadway as it approached a left curve.
Afterward, Cranfill’s vehicle struck the dirt embankment between the main portion of the highway and the onramp from Placerville Drive.
The impact of the crash caused the vehicle to roll over and to rest facing the wrong way.
Reports said Cranfill was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. As a result, he was partially ejected from the vehicle.
Rescuers took Cranfill to Marshall Hospital where authorities pronounced him dead at 11:37 P.M.
On the other hand, rescuers took Biggane to Sutter Roseville Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries Sunday at 7:38 A.M.
