Folsom two-vehicle crash kills one, injures two others

One person died and two others were injured during a two-vehicle crash late Wednesday morning in Folsom.

The crash, reported at 11:46 a.m., took place on Blue Ravine Road at Crossing Way, said Sgt. Andrew Bates, Folsom police spokesman.

One person died in the crash and two others were taken to an area hospital, Bates said.

A preliminary investigation found that the driver of a black sedan westbound on Blue Ravine Road lost control due to unsafe speed and the sedan struck a white truck that was traveling eastbound, according to a news release. Onlookers tried to rescue the person who was fatally injured, but they were unable to get into the vehicle.

Police said they are not identifying the injuries suffered by specific occupants of the vehicles until families are notified.

Blue Ravine Road is closed from East Bidwell Street to Riley Street during the accident investigation, Bates said.
