ORANGEVALE, CA (July 6, 2023) – Saturday evening, a three-vehicle crash on Hazel Avenue involving a motorcycle left one person dead.
CHP officers responded to the fatal incident around 6:20 p.m. on Hazen Avenue, just south of Central Avenue.
Upon arrival, authorities learned that a northbound Scion sedan driven by an adult male veered into the southbound lanes for unknown reasons. As a result, the Scio collided head-on with a Hyundai SUV traveling in the opposite direction.

Meanwhile, the female SUV driver and the Scion driver were transported to a hospital for treatment of minor to major injuries.
