Driver flees after early morning collision on I-5

SAN DIEGO, CA – Troopers with the California Highway Patrol responded to a hit-and-run collision on I-5 south of downtown San Diego early Thursday morning.

According to the CHP, Troopers were called to the scene of a multi-vehicle crash at about 6:50 a.m. on I-5 near the exit to State Route 15.

Investigators say the driver of a white Mercedes was facing the wrong way in the median and attempted to make a U-turn when he was struck by an oncoming white Sedan.

The driver of the Mercedes fled the scene of the crash before authorities arrived. It is unclear whether the other driver sustained any injuries in the collision.
