Two people were killed Saturday in a crash involving a wrong-way motorist and multiple vehicles on Interstate 5 in Chula Vista, the California Highway Patrol said.

The crash on the southbound freeway, north of L Street, occurred 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.

All southbound lanes of I-5 were closed and traffic was being diverted off J Street, the CHP said.
