Erratic driving reported before Folsom collision

Folsom police are investigating a collision that sent two people to the hospital this afternoon.

Officers and fire crews responded to the crash on Folsom Boulevard at Iron Point Road at 2:52 p.m. Witnesses told police that the driver of one of the vehicles, a sport-utility vehicle, had been seen driving erratically on Highway 50 before exiting at Folsom Boulevard.

The SUV driver, a woman, continued to travel at unsafe speeds, passing vehicles as she approached slow-moving traffic on Iron Point Road, according to a Police Department news release. After passing several vehicles on the right side of the roadway, she tried to change lanes, moving to the left at an unsafe speed and sideswiping a red BMW, witnesses told police. Both vehicles ended up in the median, where the SUV struck a tree.

The lone occupant of the BMW was transported to an area hospital with moderate injuries. The driver of the SUV, also the sole occupant of the vehicle, was transported to a hospital with serious injuries, according to police.

An investigation is under way to determine the cause of the collision, and whether drugs or alcohol were factors, police said.

Anyone with information regarding the collision is asked to email officer Bill Bradshaw at bbradshaw@folsom.ca.us.
