18 Year Old Killed in Collision
The Sacramento Police Department is looking for information regarding a fatal vehicle collision.
On Tuesday, January 14, 2014, at approximately 6:12 a.m., officers responded to a report of solo vehicle collision in the area of Duckhorn Drive and Far Niente Way. It was determined that the driver of a 1997 Acura Integra failed to negotiate a curve on Duckhorn Drive. The car left the roadway and collided with a street light pole.
