Jonathan Thomas Nangle was sued in 2021 for another Sacramento crash while behind the wheel

The Sacramento police detective who officials say hit and killed two men in a freeway crash earlier this week was identified Thursday as Jonathan Thomas Nangle. The California Highway Patrol said the crash happened Tuesday around 6 a.m. on southbound Interstate 5 near Sutterville Road. Nangle was on duty in an unmarked Ford Fusion that hit the two others as a result of an "unknown reason."
