Wrong-Way Driver Causes Fatal Crash
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A 27-year-old motorcyclist was killed on New Year’s Eve by a drunk
wrong-way driver. According to the California Highway Patrol, a motorcyclist was hit by
a suspected drunk driver traveling the wrong way on Interstate 5 on Saturday
in San Ysidro. Officials say the drunk Mazda 3 driver was driving northbound
in the southbound I-5 lanes north of Dairy Mart Road when he collided
with a southbound motorcyclist. Authorities say the motorcyclist died
at the scene of the crash.
CHP officials said a Dodge pickup truck also struck the Mazda 3, injuring
the truck driver. The DUI suspect suffered only minor injuries and was
treated at a nearby hospital. He was arrested on suspicion of DUI and
taken to jail. Police have not released the name of the motorcycle victim
nor the name of the DUI suspect. The accident is still under investigation.
Authorities say the motorcyclist is one of 19 people killed this year
in DUI-related crashes across the state on New Year’s holiday weekend.
