One dead, several injured in Rancho Cordova car crash

One person was killed and several were injured when multiple cars slammed together at the intersection of Folsom and Sunrise Boulevards in Rancho Cordova just before 11:15 p.m. Friday, police said.

Authorities said the accident was triggered when a Volvo sedan traveling westbound on Folsom Boulevard at "an extremely high rate of speed," collided with a Range Rover SUV traveling southbound through the intersection.

The collision then initiated a chain reaction, causing three other cars to be struck, according to reports.

The male driver of the Volvo was pronounced dead on the scene by emergency personnel. Police said a 4-year-old boy, who was a passenger in the Range Rover, was thrown from the vehicle but that his injuries do not appear to be life-threatening. Several other individuals were treated at area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.

Anyone having information pertinent to this accident is asked to contact the Rancho Cordova Police Department at (916) 875-9600.
