One person was killed and seven people were injured Sunday afternoon after a driver failed to stop at a stop sign and slammed her car into van carrying seven people, according to California Highway Patrol.
The accident happened at 12:31 p.m. when a driver driving a silver Hyundai Santa Fe was heading southbound on Wyda Way when she failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Alta Arden.
The Santa Fe smashed into a silver Chrysler Town and Country mini van that was traveling westbound on Alta Arden, CHP officer Jenna Berry said. The crash caused the Chrysler van to strike a gold Toyota Sienna van that was heading eastbound on Alta Arden.
The driver of the Santa Fe was taken to UC Davis for treatment. One man in the van was pronounced dead at the scene. A child in the van suffered major injuries and was taken to UC Davis. Her injuries were considered critical, according to Berry.
