Two motorists were killed Monday in a wrong-way crash on the Foothill (210) Freeway in Montrose, the California Highway Patrol reported.
Both drivers died at the scene of the crash, which occurred about 2:45 a.m. on the eastbound 210 west of Rosemont Avenue, according to the CHP.
Authorities withheld the names of the fatally injured motorists, pending notification of their relatives.
According to CHP Officer Vince Ramirez, a Granada Hills woman behind the wheel of a 2016 Mazda 3 was driving the wrong way on the freeway when her car collided with a 2014 Honda Civic being driven by a Sunland man.
A male passenger in the Mazda, who is from Granada Hills, was taken to a hospital with major burn injuries to his arms, legs and face, the CHP reported.
All eastbound lanes were closed until about 7 a.m. while an investigation was conducted. Anyone with information on the crash was urged to call the CHP Altadena Area office at 626-296-8100.
