SACRAMENTO - A car ended up under a delivery truck  in Sacramento Tuesday afternoon.

According to California Highway Patrol Officer Lizz Dutton, the FedEx driver was traveling southbound Watt Avenue and slowing to make a right-hand turn onto Chenu Avenue with the turn signal on.

The driver of a silver Dodge Avenger who was speeding and straddling the third lane and the right turn didn't see the slowing truck ahead and slammed into the back and underneath it, Dutton said.

Dutton said the passenger side of the car was pinned underneath the truck. The passenger, Joshua Stephens, 21, of Rancho Cordova was pinned in the crumpled car and had to be extricated by Sacramento Metro Fire District crews.

Stephens was transported to an area hospital with major injuries, Dutton said.

Neither the driver of the Dodge, identified as David Longenecker, 25, of Sacramento, nor the delivery truck driver, a 23-year-old man from Citrus Heights, was injured.

The collision was first reported at 1:05 p.m.
