Authorities said they are still probing the cause of a fatal Wednesday evening car accident on Interstate 80 in north Sacramento.
A 22-year-old Carmichael man was killed when his Volkswagen swerved off the highway and struck a light pole.
The man was identified as Artur Hovhannisyan. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the 6:35 p.m. accident.
Officer Chad Hertzell of the California Highway Patrol said the driver was eastbound toward the Interstate 5 interchange when the car veered off the road “for unknown reasons.”
