On April 3, 2009 at approximately 11:20 p.m., Michelle Dlallo, a 44 year old from Sacramento, was driving a white 1993 Nissan Sentra on eastbound Madison Avenue east of San Juan Avenue. Dlallo allowed her vehicle to travel across a raised concrete curb and into the westbound lanes of Madison Avenue. Wanda Drewitz, a 46 year old from Carmichael was driving a 2001 green Toyota pickup westbound on Madison Avenue in the far left lane. The Nissan struck the Toyota head-on. Tonya Guillama, a 39 year old from Fair Oaks was driving a grey 2001 Kia Sportage behind the Toyota and collided with the rear of it after the first impact. Dlallo was transported to Mercy San Juan Medical Hospital (MSJ) where she died from her injuries. Drewitz was also transported to MSJ with complaint of pain to her chest. Guillama had complaint of pain and chose to seek her own medical aid.
Alcohol is suspected to be a contributing factor in this collision on Dlallo’s part; results of a toxicology report are pending. Dlallo was driving with a suspended license. Guillama was driving with an expired license. All parties involved were wearing their seatbelts.
