2 killed in California crash involving wrong-way driver”

Two people were killed in an apparent wrong-way crash in Anaheim, officials said Monday morning.

Two people were reported killed in Fullerton Monday when a vehicle driven northbound on the southbound Santa Ana (5) Freeway collided with an SUV that burst into flames.

Authorities said calls began flooding into dispatchers just after 3:15 a.m., reporting a wrong-way driver heading north in the freeway's southbound lanes.

All southbound lanes were initially closed but the CHP later reopened the carpool lane. The auto was reported doing 70 miles per hour in the slow lane at 3:19 a.m. and then 100 miles per hour on the right shoulder of the roadway one minute later, according to CHP logs.

A person was apparently trapped and one of the vehicles were on fire.

The drivers of both vehicles were killed and the SUV burst into flames, according to the CHP.

The extent of injuries was not immediately clear but reports show Riverside Fire personnel were dispatched to the scene.
