CHP issues report on double fatal collision in South Sacramento County

The South Sacramento CHP office issued a report on the collision that claimed two lives early Monday morning.

On August 29, 2022, at approximately 4:18 am, South Sacramento CHP units were advised of a solo vehicle versus a house traffic collision onVintage Park Drive at Kirkton Court. It would later be determined that the vehicle struck a wooden fence and a tree, not the house. Several units responded to the scene and investigators determined that a Hyundai Accent, driven by a 21 year old female out of Sacramento, was traveling westbound on Vintage Park Drive approaching Kirkton Court at a high rate of speed when for an unknown reason, the driver swerved hard to the left, went into a side skid, crossed the eastbound lane and sidewalk, before colliding with a wooden fence and then a tree in the front yard of a residence on Kirkton Court.

The driver was declared deceased by Sac Metro Fire at the scene and was positively identified as the driver due to being cut out of the driver’s seat by Sac Metro personnel. After a lengthy extrication, the right front passenger (John Doe) was removed from his seat and transported to a local hospital where he was later declared deceased by hospital staff. The left rear passenger, a 29-year-old male out of Sacramento, was ejected from the Hyundai and transported to a local hospital with major but non-life threatening injuries.

The identity of the deceased will be released by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office once the next of kin is notified. It is suspected that alcohol was a factor in this collision.
