1 dead, 1 hospitalized after wrong-way crash on I-8 in Lakeside

LAKESIDE, CA – One person is dead, and a driver has been sent to the hospital following a wrong-way collision on I-8 in Lakeside early yesterday morning, according to FOX 5 San Diego and the Times of San Diego.

The crash happened on westbound I-8, near Dunbar Lane, at about 2 a.m., when at least two vehicles, possibly a sedan and an SUV, collided.

Multiple other vehicles crashed into debris that was strewn onto the roadway from the crash.

One person died as a result of the accident.

The wrong-way driver was taken to the hospital with severe, life-threatening wounds.

Authorities did not immediately identify the victims.

The crash happened after reports of a car driving recklessly and swerving between lanes while headed eastbound in the westbound lanes of the interstate.

The westbound lanes of I-8 were closed for multiple hours following the crash, which remains under investigation at this time.
