ELK GROVE, Calif. (CBS13) – One person was killed and six others injured in a rollover crash on northbound Highway 99 on Saturday night.
A white Toyota 4Runner spun out of control while trying to merge onto Highway 99 near Laguna Boulevard just before 7:30 p.m., striking a loaded minivan. The van rolled over, ejecting several occupants.
An adult male has been pronounced dead at the scene and six other people, including several children, were rushed to the hospital for treatment.
The driver of the 4Runner was not seriously hurt and said the wet road caused him to lose control.
Northbound Highway 99 was shut down immediately after the accident but CHP has since reopened all lanes to traffic.
