SAN DIEGO — A driver was killed Sunday in a two-vehicle crash on northbound Interstate 805 at state Route 905 near the U.S.-Mexico border, authorities said.
The collision occurred around 5:27 a.m. when a 21-year-old man driving a Volkswagen coupe crashed into the rear of a Honda sport-utility vehicle at a high rate of speed, said Jesse Matias of the California Highway Patrol in a press release.
The driver of the Honda, a 58-year-old from Tijuana, Mexico, died at the scene, according to authorities, while the driver of the Volkswagen was taken to a hospital.
According to the CHP, driving under the influence of alcohol may have been a factor in the accident.
