Solo Vehicle Fatality on SR-51 to Watt

On August 27, 2019 at approximately 1:31 am, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) received reports of a traffic collision in the area of Watt Avenue and Longview Drive. Upon arrival responding units located a 2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo within the dry creek bed of Arcade Creek, east of northbound SR-51, and north of Watt Avenue.

Both the male driver and male passenger were still seat belted inside the vehicle and required extrication. Sacramento County Fire arrived on scene and pronounced both parties in the vehicle deceased. Preliminary on scene investigation suggests this was a solo vehicle traffic collision. Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a factor in this collision.
