1 killed in Friars Road collision

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - One person was killed when a car spun out on on a rain-slick exit from Interstate 15 and crashed into an oncoming fuel tanker on Friars Road in Mission Valley Sunday.

The motorist had been exiting northbound Interstate 15 onto westbound Friars Road at about 8:20 a.m., according to San Diego police Officer Dan Lasher.

The ramp was wet from recent rain and the motorist's car spun out of control, slid across Friars Road and collided with the eastbound tanker, Lasher said.

The motorist died in the crash, Lasher said. His or her identity was withheld until relatives could be notified, Lasher said.

Friars Road was closed in both directions following the crash, and Lasher said the closure would likely extend for several hours.

The curving offramp from northbound Interstate 15 to westbound Friars Road was also closed for the investigation, according to the California Highway Patrol.
