One person died and two others were injured early this afternoon in a crash involving a motor home and pickup truck in Rancho Murieta.
Assistant Chief Walt White of the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District said rescue crews responded at 12:35 p.m. to a report of a collision on Jackson Road east of Murieta South Parkway.
Details regarding the collision were not immediately available from the California Highway Patrol, but White said it appeared to have been a head-on crash.
White said a man, a woman and a large dog were in the motor home, which was towing a boat. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and the man was taken by ground ambulance to Kaiser South Medical Center for medical evaluation. The dog was not injured and was being cared for by fire personnel.
The driver of the pickup was trapped and had to be extricated from the vehicle. He was transported to the Rancho Murieta Airport, where he was taken by air ambulance to Kaiser South Medical Center.
Names of the vehicle occupants have not been released.
White said the crash sparked a small grass fire, which burned about an acre. He said the rescue and firefighting efforts also were complicated by a leaking propane tank.
