Law enforcement officials, however, have not been able to confirm these reports and officials are still looking to establish whether another vehicle, was in fact on the scene. According to authorities, there were reportedly two individuals in the car when it crashed and caught on fire. Amazingly, both occupants only sustained minor injuries and they were transported to area hospitals with emergency medical personnel. The Sacramento Fire Department arrived on the scene to extinguish the flames and traffic was delayed in the area until authorities could clear the scene.
Officials suspect that the driver was speeding shortly before he lost control. However, no one was arrested and drugs and alcohol are not believed to be factors.
