Red light running is suspected in a major injury collision that occurred at 11:59 p.m. on Monday night, July 28, at the intersection of Galleria Boulevard and Roseville Parkway. A 1992 Honda Accord coupe was making a left turn onto westbound Roseville Parkway from northbound Galleria Boulevard, and collided with a 1995 full-size Chevy pickup that was southbound on Galleria Boulevard. The impact caused the pickup to roll over. Roseville Police Department’s Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) investigators have not yet determined which driver ran a red light.
The pickup driver, 28-year old Jose Luis Serrano-Diaz of Roseville, sustained minor injuries and sought medical attention on his own. The driver of the Honda, a 17-year-old female from Citrus Heights, and her two 16-year-old passengers were all transported by ambulance to Sutter Roseville Medical Center. The driver and one passenger were treated and released. The other passenger was listed in critical condition. It appears that the 17-year-old had passed her provisional license period, and was legally licensed to drive at night, with passengers. There were no obvious indications of alcohol use by either party.
The intersection of Galleria Boulevard and Roseville Parkway was closed for five hours while the collision was being investigated.
Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to call the Roseville Police Department Traffic Unit at (916)773-5043 and leave a message for Officer Dan Wanamaker.
