CHULA VISTA, Calif. — Two people were killed Saturday in a crash involving a wrong-way motorist and multiple vehicles in Chula Vista, the California Highway Patrol said.

The crash happened on Interstate 5 north of L Street at 4:55 a.m. as a vehicle was driving northbound in southbound lanes, according to CHP Public Information Officer Salvador Castro.

The CHP said the suspect’s vehicle — which had its lights off — crashed into a Ford Focus. It was not known whether the two people died at the scene or at an area hospital.

The southbound lanes of I-5 were shut down for hours to clean up debris and for the crash investigation. Traffic was diverted to the J Street off-ramp.
