2 dead in wrong-way collision on Interstate 5

Two people are dead after one of them was driving the wrong way on Interstate 5 early Monday morning.

The California Highway Patrol says a 78 year old Vallejo woman was driving a 2010 Ford Edge, the wrong way in the northbound lane of Interstate 5 near Husted Rd just before 2 AM when she struck another vehicle, a Subaru driven by a 73 year old Seattle man; both drivers died from their injuries.

Lanes were closed for about two hours while police investigated.

Pending notification of family, the names of those involved have not been released.
