Three people died, including two San Diego Police Department officers, following a wrong-way driver heading north in the southbound Interstate 5 lanes in San Ysidro crashed with an oncoming car on Friday morning, according to officials.

The crash took place just before 10:25 a.m. on the I-5 near State Route 905, California Highway Patrol (CHP) Officer Jim Bettencourt said. He said the car headed in the wrong direction was allegedly going at “a high rate of speed”.

The car, a Honda Civic, burst into flames during the vehicle crash.

Three bodies were discovered in the crash of the two cars — one woman was in the Honda, and a man and a woman were inside blue Ford Fusion sedan.

Mayor Todd Gloria released a statement about the deaths of the two officers:

“It is with heavy hearts that we mourn our two San Diego Police Department officers whose lives were tragically taken this morning.”
