Elk Grove, CA (August 30, 2018) – A local news source recently reported a woman potentially involved in the fatal DUI Accident that resulted in the death of one person and the injuries sustained by six more people has been arrested. The violent collision occurred along the Interstate 5 Freeway, in the vicinity of Lambert Road, at approximately 2:30 AM on Monday, August 27, 2018.

Meanwhile, officials identified the fatality as Colin Mulhern and one of the surviving victims as Patrick Carney.
Based on the initial report, Mulhern had been driving a van towing a trailer along Interstate 5 when, for indeterminate reasons, Lewis plowed her Ford Explorer into the rear of the trailer. As a result of the impact, the van flipped over and slid across a section of the interstate.
Later, officials sadly confirmed that Mulhern had died at the crash site.
Patrick Carney and the other five occupants of the van also sustained injuries in the crash and were sent to a nearby hospital for more in-depth treatment. Medical personnel reported that Carney had sustained severe injuries during the impact but did not specify the extent of injuries sustained by the other five victims.
