Wrong-way driver on 210 Freeway leads to death of 4 in head-on crash

Four people were killed early Sunday in a head-on collision on the 210 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley.

The crash occurred about 1:45 a.m. shortly after California Highway Patrol officials received calls of a wrong-way driver in the eastbound lanes of the freeway.

Amy Bastman of the Los Angeles Fire Department said three people died at the scene and the fourth died at a hospital.

KABC-TV reports the wrong-way driver is among the dead. Investigators are looking into whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the collision.

Traffic is moving again in the eastbound lanes of the freeway, which were closed immediately after the crash.
