ROSEVILLE — The intersection of Baseline and Fiddyment roads was closed Monday afternoon after a multi-vehicle crash.

The Roseville Police Department said five people were hospitalized from the seven-vehicle crash.

Roseville Police say Mary Catherine Eddy, 58, was driving a large RV and fled the scene of a minor accident near Cirby Way and Vernon Street. A Sacramento County sheriff’s deputy, who had stopped to investigate the smaller accident, chased her to Baseline and Fiddyment, until the RV hit several other vehicles in the intersection.
