Big Rig Accident Kills a Man and Woman on Jackson Highway
Two people died on December 3 when their vehicle crashed with a big rig along Jackson Highway. The accident occurred around 10:19 in the morning close to Sloughhouse Road, according to the report issued by the California Highway Patrol (CHP). Witnesses said that a Honda sedan turned onto Jackson Highway from Eagles Nest Road as the tractor-trailer was moving east. The big rig crashed into the driver’s side of the Honda, which shoved it across Jackson Highway and off the roadway. The smaller vehicle ended up on the shoulder of the road, and both the female driver and a male passenger died in the crash. The semi driver was uninjured in the collision. The names of those who were killed have not yet been released, pending notification of family by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office.
