Sonoma teen killed in Sacramento car wreck

Posted on January 16, 2014 by Sonoma Valley Sun

The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office has confirmed that David Corona, 18, of Sonoma, died Tuesday in a one-car crash in northwestern Sacramento.

The driver of a 1997 Acura Integra was traveling in the Natomas area at about 6:12 a.m. when he lost control of the car and broadsided a pole, according to Sacramento police.

Corona, the passenger, was taken to UC Davis Medical Center when he later passed away. The driver, described as in his 20s, was also taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Wednesday, Sacramento police Officer Michele Gigante said investigators were looking for a possible witness to the crash. Detectives learned a white Toyota Corolla may have been traveling behind the Integra and the person or persons inside may have seen what happened.

It was not believed the Toyota was involved in the collision, Gigante said. Police say speed was being considered as a factor in the crash.
