Woman believed to have caused fatal 6-car pileup on I-15

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS/CBS 8) - A 35-year-old woman was killed in a subsequent head-on pileup that involved six cars on the Interstate 15, the County Medical Examiner's Office said Saturday.

County medical examiners said they could find no reason or explanation why the woman, whose name was not immediately released, drove a Toyota Corolla south in the freeway's northbound lanes at Pomerado Road at about 11 p.m. Friday. Witnesses told CHP officers the Corolla had reversed directions and was struck by two vehicles, according to the county Medical Examiner's Officer.

As many as six vehicles were involved in the collision, according to the California Highway Patrol.

She was taken to a local hospital where, despite aggressive efforts, she was pronounced dead, according to the Medical Examiner's report.

Her identity was being withheld pending family notification. An autopsy had not been scheduled this holiday weekend.

It was unknown if anyone else was injured in the crash.
