-A +A
FOLSOM, CA - An accident at Blue Ravine Road and Natoma Station Drive has left one dead and another with minor injuries. When Folsom Police officers arrived at the scene at 6 p.m., July 11, they found a woman in a tan full size sport utility suffering from minor to moderate injuries and a man in a gold sedan who had suffered a fatal injury. Paramedics from the Folsom Fire Department pronounced the male driver deceased at the scene. During the subsequent investigation, officers determined the 86 year old driver of the sedan had been involved in a minor traffic collision on Folsom Boulevard and Blue Ravine Road. He left the scene of that collision and continued eastbound on Blue Ravine Road. As his vehicle approached the next intersection, his sedan failed to stop at the red light and struck the SUV turning from westbound Blue Ravine Road onto southbound Natoma Station Drive. It was determined the two crashes were completely unrelated to one another. Investigators from the Major Accident Response Team are investigating whether a medical condition or another factor may have played a role in the collisions. The roadway was reopened at 10:30 p.m.
