The southbound San Diego Freeway was closed for nearly five hours Sunday morning after a fatal accident near the Bristol Street off ramp in Costa Mesa.
The California Highway Patrol responded to the three-vehicle crash just before midnight Saturday. A woman was pronounced dead at the scene and two other victims were transported to local hospitals.
The dead woman had to be extricated from the vehicle with the assistance of personnel from the Orange County Coroner‘s office.
All lanes of the southbound freeway were closed and traffic was diverted to the 73 freeway.
