Authorities Investigate High-Speed Fatal Rio Linda Collision

Traffic rules were created with the aim of making the roads safe for everyone. However, these roads become dangerous due to the presence of drivers who have no regard for the law and the safety of others.

Authorities are currently investigating a high-speed collision in Rio Linda that ended the life of one person and injured five others.

The woman who died in the accident was identified by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office as Christine Anne Ingle, 45, from Rio Linda.

According to reports, authorities responded to a collision between a Ford Explorer and Mercedes that occurred along the intersection of C and 16th streets.

The Ford Explorer driven by Ingle was moving north along 16th Street when a Mercedes that was moving east on C Street at a speed of about 70 to 100 mph suddenly broadsided it.

Police said the Mercedes driver was unable to stop at a stop sign prior to the collision.

The woman was announced dead at the accident area. Meanwhile, five people who sustained major injuries were brought to Mercy San Juan Medical Center and UC Davis Medical Center.
