Fatality Caused by Car Fire in Rio Linda
A woman was killed in a car fire on July 26 in Rio Linda. The accident happened in the 200 block of U Street at about 3:18 p.m. According to a California Highway Patrol (CHP) spokesperson, the car the woman was driving hit a bump in the road and crashed into a tree. A car fire erupted after the crash, and the woman was unable to escape the vehicle. She was the sole occupant of the car, police said. The coroner’s office has not identified the woman at this time. I’d like to take this opportunity to offer my condolences to the woman’s family and friends.
