According to an article from the San Diego Union-Tribune, on Monday, February 26th 2018, at about 1:55 a.m. 35-year-old Justin VillaFranca Callahan was killed and two women were hospitalized as a result of a wrong-way traffic accident that took place on the transition road of Interstate 8 to the 5 Freeway in the city of San Diego.
Furthermore, officials report that Callahan drove a Volkswagon Jetta onto Highway 8 the wrong way and tried going south on the northbound lanes of Interstate 5 prior to crashing head-on into a Toyota Camry. As mentioned in the article a 22-year-old Santee woman was driving the Toyota and had a 36-year-old El Cajon woman riding as a passenger at the time of the accident. A 25-year-old man was driving a Jeep Cherokee and was not able to stop in time and tapped the rear-end of the Camry, as cited by the San Diego Union-Tribune.
In addition, Callahan died at the scene of the accident and the 2 women in the Toyota were transported to hospitals by paramedics. One of the woman sustained major injuries and the other woman received moderate injuries, as stated by officials.
