Car crash victim dies

A 64-year-old Auburn man injured in a crash near Alta Sierra last month has died, according to authorities.

Anthony Arellano died Saturday at a Sacramento hospital, according to the Sacramento County coroner’s office, six weeks after his northbound Ford Mustang was struck by a Dodge pickup, which fishtailed in and out of the north and southbound lanes of Highway 49 on Feb. 3.

The driver of the pickup, William Gutenberger, 24, of Sacramento, was arraigned on a reckless driving charge last month.
