One trapped person was extricated from the overturned vehicle and rushed to the hospital by ambulance, a second was pronounced deceased at the scene. Firefighters used heavy rescue tools to remove the person from the vehicle.

The crash closed the fast lane of Highway 99, and scattered debris across the roadway. Stuffed animals, clothing and shoes could be seen around the crash site.

Early indications suggest the crash may have been the result of a hit and run. Officers searched the area for any other involved vehicles with visible damage, but by 3:30am had not located any.
