The driver of the minivan, John T. Lee, Sr., 64, of Marysville, was not injured, said Leal.

Neither the driver nor the passenger in the Highlander were wearing seat belts. Leal said the driver would have survived if she was wearing a seat belt.

Sacramento man arrested in 2009 Davis rape

DAVIS, CA - Davis police announced an arrest Friday in a two-year-old rape.

Lt. Paul Doroshov said detectives took Leonardo Avalos, 28, from Sacramento into custody Thursday and booked him into Yolo County Jail on charges of rape, forced oral copulation, sodomy and kidnapping in the Feb. 5, 2009 assault.

The 21-year-old victim had been at a downtown Davis bar with friends when she met Avalos and had a few drinks with him, Doroshov said. The two drove back to her apartment. The woman refused to have sex with Avalos and he said he would take her back to her friends, she told investigators. However, Avalos instead drove her to the outskirts of Davis and sexually assaulted her before taking her to her Davis home, Doroshov said.

Bail for Avalos was set at $150,000.

Terrorism Expert: Sacramento has many soft targets

SACRAMENTO, CA. - The Saudi born student arrested in Texas on suspicion of terrorism listed a number of 'soft' targets, including several reservoir dams in California.

The Sacramento area has a number of 'soft' targets, areas that have little to no military protection or security, but no specific locations were mentioned after the student's arrest.

After the 9/11 attacks, authorities increased security along Folsom Dam. According to terrorism expert John Kane, people have a lot more to worry about.

"The whole community is a soft target," Kane said. "Any basketball game, any high school football game, any larger group of people coming together in a hotel or convention center is a potential terrorist target. If you start thinking about it--a freeway, a railroad, a harbor, a bus terminal, a train terminal-all of the infrastructure we have is a soft target."
