The driver who allegedly caused a multi-car pileup this afternoon in Natomas is being investigated by Sacramento Police for suspected DUI.

The accident involving up to six different vehicles occurred shortly after 12:30 p.m. at the intersection of San Juan and Truxel roads. Sacramento Fire responded to the scene and treated those who were injured.

Two adults – a man and a woman – were transported to an area hospital to be treated for injuries sustained as a result of the accident, police spokesperson Justin Brown said. The woman, he said Sunday, sustained serious injuries.

A baby in the same vehicle was uninjured, Brown said.

    That looks terrifying!

  2. I was driving home and passed right by the accident just after the ambulances left. by just seeing the cars, it brought me to tears knowing how bad the cars were smashed and hoping no lives were lost. I’m very glad to hear that no one lost their life. I also hope that if it was caused by a driver with suspected D.U.I. that he gets punished with a hard sentence, not a slap on the rist and. Then released to get another D.U.I. and cause a possible death next time!!

    These are my cousins, one is the mother of the uninjured baby and is in critical condition. That drunk SOB better hope she makes it.

  4. We were in the dark suv. My wife 5 year old daughter and unborn son. We hurt all over and my daughter starts to cry when we get into a car now.

    The white Hyundai Suv had 3 people inside. …. james(18) broken ribs and punctured lung……amai(8 days old) abrasions and bruising. …Danielle (22) is left fighting for her life broken pelvis damaged liver and internal bleeding. …..we as their family ask for you to add them to your prayers. May God guide us through this terrible time as he is with us step by step.

    God grant me the serenity 
    to accept the things I cannot change; 
    courage to change the things I can;
    and wisdom to know the difference.

    Living one day at a time; 
    Enjoying one moment at a time; 
    Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; 
    Taking, as He did, this sinful world
    as it is, not as I would have it; 
    Trusting that He will make all things right
    if I surrender to His Will;
    That I may be reasonably happy in this life 
    and supremely happy with Him
    Forever in the next.
    Amen.

      Everyone feels a different way about it. Im also family to the 3 in the accident. I think the more people we let know about it the more prayers and positive vibes can be sent their way. Everyone deals w things differently tho so i respect everyones opinion but I dont think anyone said anything on here out of line or disrespectful

      • Christina Collier says:

    • Christina Collier says:

    I can’t locate the fund set up to help out the baby’s mother. Can someone please post this information? Thank you.

  13. Has the DUI suspect been arrested yet?

  14. SacPD tells us this crash is still being investigated & that no arrests have been made to date.

    None of the victims of the crash, or their representatives, have been in contact with us, so we are unable to report any information about their conditions.
