A teenager who died in a three-vehicle collision on the Capital City Freeway Sunday has been identified as a Sacramento-area high school student.
According to the California Highway Patrol, 15-year-old Haylie Jordan died when the Ford Focus she was in was struck by a Ford pick-up truck in the number 2 northbound lane of the freeway at 3:50 p.m. Haylie was sitting in the backseat.
The impact sent the Focus into the back of a tractor trailer.
The CHP said Haylie died at the scene.
San Juan Unified School District spokesperson Kim Minugh said Haylie was a freshman at El Camino Fundamental High School and on the dance team. Her hobby was beekeeping.
The two adults in Haylie's car suffered minor injuries as did the driver of the pickup truck.
The big rig driver was not hurt.
The CHP said the Focus and pickup truck had major damage.
