ANSWER: According to a story in The Bee, Sacramento police received a call about 5:30 a.m. March 25 reporting a vehicle speeding southbound on Truxel Road in the Natomas area.
The vehicle ran off the road at Truxel and Garden Highway and into Steelhead Creek. Divers searched the creek most of the morning before locating the vehicle. When a tow truck pulled the car from the water, a man's body was found inside.
The Sacramento County Coroner's Office in online records identified the man as Milton Jose Sujo, 37, of Sacramento.
