Driver killed in one-vehicle crash

A car crashed into a tree along Industrial Avenue early Sunday, resulting in the death of the driver, a man in his 60s, Roseville police reported.

Officers were called to the scene at 6:30 a.m. Police said the man appeared to have been driving his gray Isuzu SUV south on Industrial Avenue when he lost control, went off the roadway and hit a large oak tree. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. His name will be released after notification of his family, police said.

Industrial Avenue was closed between Packard Drive and Galilee Road until 2 p.m. Sunday as the Multidisciplinary Accident Investigation Team examined the scene, said Dee Dee Gunther, police spokeswoman.

Anyone with information on the crash can call the Roseville Police Department at (916) 774-5000, ext. 1, option 2.

Police identify man who died after stabbing

Authorities on Sunday released the name of the man who was stabbed to death the day before in Rancho Cordova.

Maurice Lynch, 20, of Rancho Cordova died after a confrontation shortly after midnight.

Rancho Cordova police officers went to the 10500 block of Peter A. McCuen Boulevard, where they found several people attempting to administer medical aid to Lynch. Medics from the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire Department pronounced him dead at the scene from stab wounds.

Detectives believe the victim and suspect, Fabian Pozos, knew each other, and that an argument escalated into violence.

Pozos, 22, was arrested and booked into Sacramento County Main Jail on suspicion of murder.
