Kent Lang Killed in West Sacramento Crash on Old River Road

West Sacramento, California – The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office identified the driver of a pickup truck who died in a West Sacramento crash that happened Wednesday evening on Old River Road as 75-year-old Kent Lang.

Lang’s 2017 Ford F-150 pickup truck collided with a 2016 Ford Fusion driven by a man who also died in the crash and who was identified by the Yolo County Coroner’s Office as Francisco Clyde Tidwell Lopez.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Lopez was driving his vehicle on Old River Road south of County Road 124 when, just after 6:00 p.m., veered into the southbound lane, crashing into the front of the pickup truck.

Lopez sustained fatal injuries and died at the crash scene.

Lang and his 73-year-old female passenger were hospitalized at UC Davis Medical Center. Sadly, Lang succumbed to his injuries. His passenger suffered moderate injuries.

Reportedly, Lopez had been driving “recklessly, at high speeds and passing unsafely,” prior to the collision.

All victims were residents of West Sacramento.

CHP-Woodland Office is investigating the accident.
