SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a fatal collision that closed all southbound lanes of an interstate in Sacramento Saturday morning was caused by a wrong way driver who was fleeing deputies.
California Highway Patrol spokesman Michael Bradley tells the Sacramento Bee (http://bit.ly/2maaa0v) the crash killed two men riding a minivan that was being chased by Sacramento County Sheriff's Department deputies.
Bradley says a truck driver involved in the collision was hospitalized with major injuries.
He says Interstate 5 near Richards Boulevard was reopened two hours later.
Sacramento County Sheriff's Office Deputies began chasing the minivan at around 7 a.m. after officers ran the vehicle's license plate and found that it was reported as a stolen vehicle.
