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.
