A person was killed Sunday morning in a crash involving a wrong way motorist on the Foothill (210) Freeway in Monrovia, the California Highway Patrol said.

The crash on the eastbound freeway, east of Huntington Drive, occurred a little before 4:40 a.m., the CHP reported.

With details still sketchy, witnesses reported a vehicle speeding eastbound in the westbound carpool lanes and that the vehicle was later described as either a silver Honda or four-door Hyundai, the CHP said.

That car then crashed, head on, with another at Huntington Drive at 4:43 a.m., with one of the vehicles overturning.

A representative from the coroner’s office was called to the location at 5:35 a.m.

A SigAlert was issued at 5:05 a.m. closing the carpool, one, two and three lanes — as well as the Huntington Drive onramp — for up to four hours. The No. 5 five lane remained open.
