CHULA VISTA (CNS) - Authorities Wednesday identified a 42-year-old motorist killed when she rear-ended a big rig on a rain-soaked stretch of Interstate 805 in the South Bay.

Gloria O'Connor of Chula Vista was the sole occupant of a northbound 2008 Mazda sedan that struck the truck's trailer near Telegraph Canyon Road shortly after 10 a.m. Tuesday, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office.

The Mazda was left partially wedged under the trailer, the California Highway Patrol reported. O'Connor died at the scene.

The accident left two lanes blocked on the busy freeway, causing heavy traffic backups in the area.
