On August 23, 2015, a man was killed and six other people were taken to area hospitals following a three-car collision in the Arden-Arcade area. The incident took place a little after noon on Sunday on the Alta Arden Expressway. Alta Arden between Wright Street and Fulton Avenue was closed down for a period of time following the collision.
According to police, a Hyundai Santa Fe that was traveling southbound on Wyda Way ran a stop sign and entered the intersection with Alta Arden, colliding with the passenger side of a Chrysler Town & Country that had been traveling westbound through the intersection. The impact caused the driver of the Chrysler to lose control of the vehicle and slam into a Toyota Sienna minivan that was traveling eastbound on Alta Arden.
A male occupant of the Chrysler was declared dead at the scene and a minor female passenger was taken to UC Davis Medical Center in critical condition. The female operator of the Hyundai was taken to UC Davis Medical Center and five additional vehicle occupants were transported to other area hospitals with injuries ranging from minor to moderate.
