Driver dies after car collides with big rig in Otay Mesa

SAN DIEGO, CA — One person died Wednesday morning after a collision involving a passenger car and a big rig in San Diego’s Otay Mesa neighborhood, according to San Diego Union-Tribune.

The accident took place on Otay Mesa Road at the Sanyo Avenue intersection near the Mexican border and was reported shortly before 8:15 a.m.

San Diego police and fire crews responded to the scene, where a driver died before they could be transported to a hospital.

It is unclear what led up to the fatal collision, but it involved a big rig hauling two trailers and a white sedan that sustained damage to its driver’s side.

All lanes of Otay Mesa Road between Sanyo Avenue and California Highway 125 were shut down during the response.

No further information has been released.
