Detectives Asking for Public’s Help After Fatal Crash

Fair Oaks Police District – Detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying two victims from this morning’s fatal single vehicle crash.  Officers responded to the crash around 4:26 a.m. on southbound Route 28 near the McLearen Road exit.

Preliminarily, it appears a newer model gray Honda CRV was driving at an excessive speed and drove off the roadway to the right, striking a utility pole. Both men died at the scene.  Due to extensive fire damage, both of the victims remain unidentified.

Detectives are hoping someone can help identify both men, who appear to be light-skinned, and under the age of 25.  The driver has a unique tattoo of a large eagle with its wings spread, holding a trophy in its’ talons.  The tattoo is centered across the entire front of the driver’s chest. The driver was also wearing a gold chain, seen in the photo below.  Please take note of the clasp design.


Due to the complex nature of the investigation, detectives are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash or has information to call 703-280-0564.
