The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office has released the name of the driver involved in this morning’s fatal pursuit.
The man was identified as 22 year old, Stephen C. Stucker, from Citrus Heights. The Coroner’s Office notified Stucker’s family members earlier today.
The story was previously reported in Reckless Driver Dies By His Own Actions.
Folsom Police Officers first noticed Stucker’s vehicle driving fast, with its headlights off, on Iron Point Road.
The vehicle ran through stop sign at the intersection of Iron Point Road and Empire Ranch Road. Officers attempted to pull the vehicle over, but the Stucker fled, with police in pursuit.
Stucker did not slow down and even attempted to run over police officers with his vehicle.
Eventually, Stucker’s vehicle hit another vehicle, and Stucker was ejected from his vehicle. He was pronounced dead on the scene. Thankfully, the person in the other vehicle was not injured in the collision.
