Four Killed In Sacramento Wreck

Quote

Four people died in a vehicle wreck Monday afternoon in the South Land Park neighborhood of Sacramento, police said.

Authorities said three adults and a small child were killed in the crash, which took place shortly before 5 p.m. along South Land Park Drive at Wymore Way.

The four people who died were riding in an older two-door car. Police said the car collided with a red Jeep.

The child riding in the car died after being taken to a local hospital. One adult was thrown from the car and killed. Two other adults died in the car, officials at the scene said.

A fifth person riding in the car survived but was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The driver of the Jeep suffered minor injuries, officials said.

Authorities said it was too early to tell if the rain-slickened street played a role in the crash.

Man Faces Charges Of DUI, Manslaughter After Fatal Wreck

Quote

A man faces charges of gross vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence of alcohol following a two-vehicle wreck Monday in Sacramento's South Land Park neighborhood that left four people dead, police said.

Robert Vellanoweth, 63, remained in jail on Tuesday.

Autopsies were planned Tuesday for two women, a teenage girl and a female toddler killed in the crash, which took place at about 3:49 p.m. along South Land Park Drive near Wymore Way.

The county coroner identified those killed as:

    * Brizchelle Ta'Corra Rice, 21
    * Shanice Patrice Carter, 18
    * Brittanya Metchelle Nash, 17
    * Kamall Dino Savant Osby, 19 months

Nash and Rice are sisters. Rice is the mother of Osby.

Police said when they arrived at the scene, they found that a brown 1984 Chrysler LeBaron and red 2005 Jeep Cherokee had been involved in a head-on collision.

The Chrysler had five occupants at the time of the collision. Four of the five passengers were pronounced dead at the scene. The fifth occupant, a 16-year-old girl, was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.

Vellanoweth, the driver of the Jeep, was taken to a hospital with moderate injuries.

Investigators said the Chrysler was traveling northbound on South Land Park prior to the collision. The Jeep, which was traveling southbound on South Land Park, crossed into oncoming traffic and struck the Chrysler head-on.

Authorities didn't know whether the occupants of the Chrysler were wearing seat belts. An appropriate child-restraint seat for the toddler was not in use at the time of the crash, police said.
