Deadly Wrong-Way Collision in San Diego

 
SAN DIEGO, CA (January 15, 2019)– A 44-year-old man from Maine perished at the scene of a wrong-way crash Sunday on the 5 Freeway near Highway 163.
 
According to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department, the 44-year-old man from Lebanon, Maine, was pronounced dead at the scene following the 4 p.m. crash.
