SACRAMENTO — A man was arrested after he was involved in a deadly crash Saturday in Sacramento.

Just after midnight, Sacramento police officers arrived at El Camino Avenue and Evergreen Street and found a driver unresponsive after a collision. He was trapped in his car.

Fire crews tried to save the man’s life but he was later pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Sacramento Police Department. In an Instagram post, a marketing manager with Zocalo restaurants said the man was a bartender named Antonio.
