Sacramento police are investigating the cause of a fiery car crash tonight in Natomas.

Shortly after 7 p.m. a Lamborghini traveling eastbound left the roadway, rolled over and burst into flames in front of the Five Star Bank building at 2400 Del Paso Road.

Reports by witnesses who said they saw two vehicles speeding on Del Paso Road have not been confirmed by investigators.

Two passengers riding in the vehicle reportedly escaped after the crash and were self transported to the Med 7 Clinic on East Commerce Way for crash-related injuries and burns.

Sacramento Fire medics were called to the clinic and transported the two victims to the UC Davis Medical Center for further treatment, according to a fire department spokesperson.

A police spokesperson said one passenger’s injuries were minor and the other passenger’s injuries were moderate.

Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the flames and clear the building.

Smoke from the accident could be seen – and smelled – throughout the Natomas Basin. One person in the area reported hearing a loud “boom” about the time of the accident.

The Sacramento Police Department is in charge of investigating the accident. At least one car was reported parked on a nearby side street and blocked by police tape. At press time, it was not known whether speed was a factor in the accident, according to police.

Eastbound traffic on Del Paso Road was delayed as a result of the accident.
