The Volkswagen, driven by a 70-year-old Sacramento man, was unable to stop in time due to “intoxication and unsafe speed” of about 50 mph, according to the CHP news release. The Volkswagen sideswiped the driver-side mirror of the Acura before continuing into the intersection, broadsiding the dump truck and causing major front-end damage to the Volkswagen.
