UPDATE: Three people killed in I-80 collision in Davis

Three people died this morning in a collision on eastbound Interstate 80 in Davis.

California Highway Patrol spokesman Officer Bryan Konvalin said the crash occurred about 10:25 a.m. on eastbound I-80 just east of the Richards Boulevard offramp.

A Mitsubishi Montero SUV was traveling eastbound in the No. 2, or center lane, when a Budget rental box truck traveling in the lane to the right of the Montero attempted to merge to the left. Konvalin said the box truck collided with the Montero, then veered to the right and ran off the roadway where it struck a tree.

All three people in the truck were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Montero, who was alone in his vehicle, was not injured.

Robert LaBrash, Yolo County chief deputy coroner, said the deceased were three men in their 20s or 30s, but he did not know where they were from. Their names are being withheld pending notification of family.

Because the crash occurred off the roadway, Konvalin said there was no major disruption to traffic on I-80. The Richards Boulevard onramp to eastbound-I-80 and Chiles Road, a frontage road, were closed for a while.
