Three injured in collision near Highway 50-I-80 split in West Sacramento

Three people have been injured, one critically, in a collision near the junction of Highway 50 and Interstate 80 in West Sacramento.

Sgt. Andrew Hill of the California Highway Patrol said the collision was reported at 4:43 p.m. He said the driver of a 2006 Toyota Sequoia had stopped for some reason on the right shoulder of the transition to eastbound Interstate 80 near Enterprise Boulevard and the Highway 50-I-80 split. The driver then attempted to cross the transition lanes and to enter eastbound Highway 50.

As the Sequoia crossed two transition lanes, it was broadsided by a 2004 Toyota Corolla. Hill said the Sequoia overturned, and the driver was partially ejected from the driver's side window.

The CHP initially reported a fatality, but Hill said paramedics revived the Sequoia driver and he was taken to UC Davis Medical Center.

The passenger in the Sequoia, the driver's 9-year-old son, was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The driver of the Corolla suffered moderate injuries and also was taken to UC Davis Medical Center.
