One man was killed in an accident on Laguna Blvd this afternoon. The accident occurred around 12:15 pm in the eastbound lanes of Laguna Blvd, just west of Bruceville Road. The Cosumnes Fire Department arrived on scene and paramedics administered CPR to an injured male. He was eventually transported to the hospital. Elk Grove Police later posted on Twitter at 4:15 pm that the man died of his injuries.
According to police, the late model silver Toyota Tacoma pickup was traveling eastbound on Laguna Blvd, when it left the roadway, and struck a light pole, shearing it off. It then hit a tree, before coming to rest in the two right eastbound lanes, where it collided with another vehicle. The name of the victim will be released by the Sacramento County Coroner. Eastbound Laguna Blvd was closed between Bruceville Road and Laguna Park/Dilusso Drive until 4:30 pm while Elk Grove Police investigated the accident.
