Sacramento Police are investigating the events that preceded a strange accident that sent several people to the hospital early today.
A white GMC Yukon eastbound on X Street flipped over near Alhambra Boulevard shortly before 2 a.m., police reported.
Officers found six people outside the vehicle, three with major injuries. They were taken to the hospital for treatment.
Police determined one of the car's occupants also had a gunshot wound in his arm. It was not known whether the gunshot victim was the driver or a passenger.
A gun was found amid debris from the accident, and two of the vehicle's occupants were "validated gang members," said Sgt. Norm Leong.
The cause of the accident is unknown.
