Andrey Tagintsev, 45, has been identified by authorities as the deceased in an accident reportedly allegedly involving driving under the influence of marijuana and assault. The accident occurred around 6:30 in the evening on Greenback Lane in Citrus Heights. Christina Diaz, 19, is alleged to have deliberately used her Toyota Camry to strike a Dodge Van in her lane. The force of the collision caused her car to veer into the opposite late, where it was struck by a Mercedes sedan driven by Mr. Tagintsev, who died at the scene. Ms. Diaz reportedly attempted to flee and was arrested on multiple felony charges, including vehicular manslaughter. The accident is currently under investigation.

We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the deceased during this difficult time.
