The accident occurred on Highway 41 north of Highway 46. Christopher Park, 24, was stopped in his Saturn due to construction when the oncoming semi clipped him.
Responders transported Park, as well as a 24-year-old passenger, to a local hospital. The passenger was only taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure.
California Highway Patrol investigators say the driver of the semi who caused the collision, 51-year-old Pastor Garcia of Elk Grove, was inattentive and driving at a high speed. Investigators do not believe drugs or alcohol factored into the collision.
