Five people died Thursday evening after a hit-and-run crash in Sacramento County that led to a carjacking and pursuit, officials said. A survivor of that crash was detained in connection.
The California Highway Patrol said it got a call at 5:27 p.m. about a Cadillac Escalade that crashed into a tree along Highway 160 at the Freeport Bridge between Clarksburg and Freeport, killing three women and two men. Shortly after the crash, a carjacking happened.
CHP said deputies with the Sacramento County Sheriff's Office spotted that driver and tried chasing after the vehicle.
The sheriff's office said it started a chase with a driver around the 8600 block of Highway 160 — about 13 miles from the crash site — by the Courtland Bridge.
