Two people injured in high-speed crash in Roseville

Two people were seriously injured tonight in a collision involving a speeding vehicle in Roseville.

A Roseville police officer northbound on Foothills Boulevard about 7:40 p.m. saw a car southbound on Foothills at a high rate of speed, according to a Police Department news release. The officer made a U-turn to get behind the speeding car, a 1997 Toyota Avalon four-door sedan. But by the time he made the turn, the Toyota had collided with a 1990 Dodge van that was making a right turn out of a shopping center onto southbound Foothills Boulevard.

The sedan spun and traveled onto a landscaped embankment in front of the shopping center.

The driver of the Toyota sedan, a 23-year-old woman from Sacramento, was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries. Her passenger, a 19-year-old man, also from Sacramento, was taken to a hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the van, a 59-year-old man from Rancho Cordova, reported no injuries.

Police said alcohol is suspected to have been a factor in the crash.

The southbound lanes of Foothills Boulevard between McAnally Drive and Junction Boulevard will be closed for several hours while police investigators examine the scene.
