Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A woman and child were killed Saturday in a multi-vehicle crash on the Interstate 15 Freeway near Poway.

The crash on the southbound freeway, near Mercy Road, occurred at 1:43 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP officials said a silver Cadillac hit a blue Honda with a mother and child inside and then took off heading westbound on Mesa Boulevard. As the Honda remained stalled on the freeway, a red pickup truck carrying a man and woman slammed into the vehicle.

When San Diego Fire-Rescue arrived on the scene, they had to extricate the woman and child from the Honda. The woman and child did not survive, CHP said. The other man and woman in the red pickup were rushed to local hospitals with unspecified injuries.

A search for the driver of the Cadillac who fled the scene took place.

Several southbound lanes on I-15 near Scripps Poway Pkwy were shut down and will remain closed for several hours, according to CHP.
