Joel Broussard Identified as Elk Grove Man Killed in Sacramento Big Rig Crash on I-5 near Florin Road

Sacramento, California – Joel Broussard, a 39-year-old man from Elk Grove, was killed in a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 5 near Florin Road on Tuesday evening, according to the Sacramento County coroner’s office.

According to the California Highway Patrol, a big rig driver was traveling southbound on I-5 when they failed to slow down while approaching slow-moving traffic.

The semi-truck then crashed into a Chrysler 300, causing a chain-reaction collision involving nine other vehicles.

CHP said Broussard was driving the Chrysler and was killed in the crash.

Two other victims were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The semi-truck tipped over, blocking all southbound lanes.

Officers diverted traffic to Florin Road.

The crash led to heavy traffic delay, but the roadway was clear by 10 p.m.

Police did not suspect alcohol or drugs to be a factor in the crash.

The accident remains under investigation.
