The Sacramento County Coroner's office has released the name of a four-year-old boy who was been killed in what authorities described as a road rage incident involving his father and a second driver.
Ryan Chanthavong of Sacramento died after his father, 26-year-old Joe Chanthavong, crashed his car as the second driver followed him and he tried to exit from Interstate 5 near the Garden Highway Saturday afternoon.
When Chanthavong lost control of his car, it went down an embankment, according to a California Highway Patrol officer.
The boy, who was not properly secured in a child restraint seat, was thrown from the car and killed.
Joe Chanthavong and the child's mother, 23-year-old Melinda Phouglonghong, who was also in the car, suffered minor injuries.
The driver of the second car drove away.
