SACRAMENTO COUNTY, CA -- A man was hospitalized Tuesday morning after a high-speed collision tore his car in half near south Orangevale, according to The Sacramento Bee.
The accident took place on the eastbound lanes of Madison Avenue east of Winding Oak Drive and was first reported at around 11:10 a.m.
A preliminary investigation by California Highway Patrol indicates the man was behind the wheel of a gray Infinity coupe speeding east on Madison while it was raining. Authorities said high speed and wet road conditions caused the driver to lose control of his car as it ran to the left of the road. The right of the vehicle slammed into a tree in the roadway's raised center median, causing the vehicle to slice in half. Both halves of the vehicle slid on the westbound lanes, where they struck the front of a Subaru.
The back end of the wrecked Infinity stopped in front of the Subaru while the front end arrived at a rest multiple yards down the road.
CHP said the causing driver was transported by ambulance to a local hospital with minor injuries.
No other injuries were reported.
