As per reports the accident occurred around 10:10 PM when a suspected DUI driver sped in the wrong direction on the freeway.
 
Officials stated that a 51-year-old man driving a Chevrolet pickup truck was driving north in the southbound lanes, causing him to smash into a Mitsubishi Lancer driven by a 25-year-old man from San Ysidro.
