What Happened?

The head-on crash including five involved people took place at approximately 4:30 pm on Friday, July 22, 2016. The collision occurred on Empire Ranch Road. The Folsom Police Department stated that it appears that the driver of the Chevy was driving in the southbound direction where the driver lost control of the vehicle, drove over the center median, collided with a tree, and crashed into a vehicle driving in the northbound direction. The Chevy vehicle carried a female driver and three children and there was one adult driver in the Kia vehicle. Investigators were on the scene for hours to determine the cause of the crash. At this time, investigators are unsure whether speed was a factor in the collision. The accident is currently being investigated.

Auto Crash Aftermath

All of the five involved occupants of both vehicles were transported to the hospital with severe injuries.  Two children were among those injured. They were transported by helicopter to the hospital. The other three that suffered injuries were transported by ambulance to the hospital.

Folsom Police Department Public Announcement
