From Elk Grove Police

At 2:37 p.m. today, the Elk Grove Police Department responded to the intersection of Laguna Boulevard and Laguna Park Drive regarding a collision involving three vehicles.        

Upon arrival, officers determined that a Ford Edge SUV, a Dodge Ram 1500, and a Ford Focus had been involved in the collision.  Based on information obtained during the investigation, it appears that the driver of the Edge SUV, who was initially travelling eastbound on Laguna Blvd. with a green signal light, unexpectedly began a turning maneuver (northbound) outside of the turning lane towards Laguna Park Drive.  The Ram 1500 pickup truck and the Ford Focus were travelling westbound on Laguna Blvd. with a green signal light.  The driver of the Ram 1500 was unable to avoid the Edge SUV and the vehicles collided.  The Edge SUV veered off to the left and stopped on the center median, while the Ram 1500 veered off to the right and stopped near a signal light pole.  The driver of the Ford Focus took evasive action to avoid being directly involved in the collision with the other two vehicles.  The Ford Focus stopped a short distance away from the intersection with damage to the rear bumper. 

Officers discovered that the adult female driver of the Edge SUV was deceased at the scene.  Identification of the deceased will be made by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office.  Two juveniles who had been in the SUV who suffered minor injuries.  The occupants of the Ram 1500 (two adults and one juvenile) were also injured.  The driver of the Ford Focus was not injured.  The injured individuals were transported to local area hospitals for treatment. 

Anyone with information regarding this collision is asked to call the Elk Grove Police Department Traffic Bureau at (916) 478-8148.
