Car on fire

On January 6, a vehicle belonging to a deputy at the Sacramento County Sheriffs' Office caught on fire. The vehicle was originally believed to be a patrol car, but officials with the California Highway Patrol stated that the vehicle was an unmarked detectives vehicle.

Shockingly, at the time that the vehicle caught on fire, the detective was still in the vehicle. The
Sheriffs' Department reports that the deputy was uninjured. The car was traveling on a bridge near Cal Expo and the Capital City Freeway when it caught on fire.

The cause of the fire is uncertain, and investigators at the Sacramento Fire Department are still investigating the wreck. Initial reports indicate that the deputy was rear-ended by another vehicle and that may have been the cause of the fire.

Until the vehicle was towed away by a flatbed truck, traffic on the northbound side of the Capital City Freeway remained congested.
