Wrong-Way Motorist Collides with Another Vehicle Head-on, Leading a Motorway Pileup
January 31, 2022

San Diego County, California (San Diego, CA) – On January 29, 2022, a wrong-way motorist collided with another vehicle on the San Diego highway, creating a pileup but avoiding major casualties.

According to California Highway Patrol call files, the automobile was originally observed by a San Diego Police investigator who detected a dark-colored sedan going south in the northbound lanes of Interstate 15. The car passed through Miramar and Mira Mesa before changing to state Route 163. The automobile was still traveling south when it collided with oncoming traffic around Friars Road in the Linda Vista neighborhood, crashing head-on into a northbound motorist. A third vehicle was also involved in the accident. One of the cars overturned, while the others were severely damaged.

A short time later, the fourth and last automobile was involved in an accident. It’s unclear why the driver lost control, although it happened near the scene of the first crash, so the individual might have been hoping to prevent the wreckage. Officers stopped all northbound lanes for more than an hour between 4:30 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Between 5:45 a.m. and 6:45 a.m., personnel cleaned up the debris, paramedics looked on motorists, and investigators began investigating the crash. Despite the forceful impact, police-reported only minor injuries among those involved in the collisions.

The initial collision was eventually determined to be “DUI-related,” but no additional information was supplied.
