Fatal Big Rig Collision in Elk Grove
A fatal big rig collision occurred near Elk Grove on March 28 when a semi went off Interstate 5 South and hit a tree. The accident happened close to Twin Cities Road at about 10:30 in the morning. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) was called to the scene and reported that one individual died in the accident. The solo crash blocked traffic to Hood-Franklin Road as the number two lane was closed to allow emergency vehicles to reach the accident site. Shortly after noon, the CHP was advising motorists to use alternate routes. I would like to offer my condolences to the family and friends of the deceased in their time of sorrow.
