Two Drivers Killed After Wrong-Way Crash on Eastbound I-80

SACRAMENTO -- The CHP is investigating a deadly wrong-way crash on eastbound Interstate 80 near Northgate Boulevard.

A dark-colored sedan was headed west in eastbound lanes and reportedly struck multiple vehicles around 10 p.m. Tuesday.

CHP first received a call for a wrong-way driver in a dark Ford Mustang going west on eastbound I-80 near Watt Avenue.

The female driver then sideswiped a Chevy Impala near Raley Blvd. and continued going the wrong way.

As the Mustang approached Northgate Blvd. it struck a male driver in a white Challenger in a head-on collision.

Both drivers were killed on impact.

At this time it is unknown if drugs or alcohol played a role in this incident.

All lanes of eastbound Interstate 80 were shut down for a little  over two hours.
