Rcpd Investigating Fatal Dui Collision

On May 23, 2018, at 11:09 P.M. the Rancho Cordova Police Department received several 911 calls from the area of International Drive and S. White Rock Road.  The callers indicated there was a major vehicle collision with injuries at the location.

Rancho Cordova Police Officers responded to the area and located two vehicles with major damage.  Officers also observed a male walking away from the scene and determined he was operating one of the involved vehicles.  The male was detained and identified as a 41-year-old resident of Stockton, California.

Officers approached the other involved vehicle and discovered it was occupied by an adult female who was unresponsive and not breathing.  Personnel from the Sacramento Metro Fire District arrived on the scene and pronounced the female deceased.

Investigators worked through the night to determine exactly what took place leading up to the collision and determined alcohol was a contributing factor.  The 41-year-old male has been arrested in relation to this incident and he will be identified upon booking, after receiving medical treatment for injuries sustained during the collision.

The identity of the victim, in this case, will be made available by the Sacramento County Coroner’s office after notification has been made to her next of kin.
