A stretch of the northbound Hollywood (101) Freeway in Hollywood was reopened Thursday morning after being closed for about four hours due to a deadly two-vehicle crash involving a wrong-way driver.

The driver was going southbound in the northbound lanes when the crash occurred near the Hollywood Boulevard exit about 1 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

All northbound lanes of the freeway were blocked at Hollywood Boulevard, but reopened about 4:45 a.m., the CHP said.

The age, gender and name of the wrong way driver were not disclosed.

The driver of the other vehicle is hospitalized in critical condition, the CHP said.
