SAN DIEGO -- One person was killed in a wrong-way crash that blocked traffic on Interstate 5 late Sunday afternoon.

The crash happened on the southbound side of I-5 near State Route 163, San Diego Fire-Rescue said. The freeway's three left lanes were blocked for several hours, reopening around 7 p.m.

A black Nissan Versa  was driving the wrong way when it hit a white  minivan head-on, officials said. The wrong-way driver was killed, while one person was injured and left trapped in the van.

That person was eventually rescued and rushed to UCSD Medical Center for treatment. They remained at the hospital in critical condition as of Sunday night.
