Two-Vehicle Crash Near Nicolaus Kills 61-Year-Old Marysville Man

NICOLAUS, CA (September 12, 2023) – Saturday night, a sedan/pickup truck collision on Highway 99 took the life of one person. The deadly collision happened shortly after 7:00 p.m. after a 2017 Ford Fusion failed to negotiate a sharp turn of the Highway 99 on-ramp. Subsequently, the Ford crossed in the right lane directly into the path of a 2022 Ram 1500 pickup truck. Police said the Ram’s driver-side door broadsided the Ford, trapping the Ford driver inside his vehicle. Responding medical personnel eventually arrived and discovered that the Ford driver was not breathing. Unfortunately, the man succumbed to his injuries at the scene, despite the life-saving efforts of the paramedics. The deceased driver was only identified as a 61-year-old man from Marysville. The CHP believed that the man was intoxicated at the time of the collision. Meanwhile, paramedics transported the Ford’s passenger and the pickup truck driver to a nearby hospital after complaints of pain. A juvenile inside the Ram was unharmed. In the end, authorities closed down northbound Highway 99 for at least two hours and diverted the traffic to northbound SR-70. The Sutter County Coroner’s office will release the deceased driver’s identity once the next of kin has been notified.
