Capital City Freeway Car Crash Injures Four

On Thursday, September 24, 2015 at approximately 7:30 p.m., a car being driven on the Capital City Freeway at El Camino Avenue struck an on-ramp metering light.  Three of the four occupants in the car were taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  The driver had to be extricated from the vehicle by the fire department.  He suffered major injuries as a result of the crash.

The California Highway Patrol reported the northbound freeway off-ramp at El Camino was closed to traffic while emergency personnel worked to clear the accident scene.
