Man dies after car crashes into Rosemont school play structure

A 21-year-old man was killed Tuesday when he lost control of his vehicle at a high rate of speed, crossed eight lanes of traffic on Bradshaw Road and crashed into a play structure at the historic Edward Kelley Prechool in Rosemont.

Sacramento County Sheriff's Department spokesman Sgt. Jason Ramos said the cause of the 3 p.m. crash is under investigation, but it appears the man "may have had a medical condition."

A 19-year-old male passenger, who was uninjured, ran for help after the accident, Ramos said.

The driver was westbound on Lincoln Village Drive when he hit a traffic island, causing his car to cross Bradshaw, run up a side ramp of a building at Edward Kelley School, flip and crash into a play structure on the north side of the campus.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene, Ramos said.

"It's a miracle no one else was hurt," Ramos said.
