Lyft’s First Fatality: Passenger Dies In Crash Near Sacramento

A Lyft passenger died in a crash on a highway outside of Sacramento, Calif. early Saturday morning, an accident that will test the car-service company’s insurance policies.

The fatal accident occurred at 1:25 a.m. on westbound Interstate 80 in Citrus Heights during heavy rain, said California Highway Patrol Officer Chad Hertzell. An unknown car rear-ended a Kia and drove away, and the Kia spun out into the middle lanes and stalled.
