5 people killed in crash near Freeport, suspect chase ends in Elk Grove

Five people were killed in a crash on Highway 160 south of Freeport and a person involved in the collision fled to Elk Grove where he was arrested.

It all began around 5:30 pm Thursday evening when a Cadillac Escalade collided with a tree on Highway 160, south of the Freeport Bridge. The CHP believes a man involved in the collision then carjacked a good samaritan who had stopped to help. That led to a chase that eventually ended in Elk Grove on Elk Grove Blvd and Fire Poppy where another collision occurred. The suspect then fled on foot to Valley Hi Country Club where he was eventually apprehended. The CHP, Sacramento Sheriff’s Deputies, and Elk Grove Police were involved in the pursuit and arrest.

The suspect was arrested and taken to the hospital for injuries suffered in one of the collisions. Highway 160 was closed for several hours. The suspect’s name has not yet been released. Three women and two men were killed in the collision. The Sacramento Coroner will release their names.
