Fatal Crash on I-5 in Del Mar Slows Morning Commute

A driver involved in a wreck on Interstate 5 Tuesday morning was hit and killed by a vehicle after he apparently went back to his damaged auto to retrieve his cell phone.

California Highway Patrol Officer Tommy Doerr said at some point a driver was walking across the lanes when he was hit by another vehicle and killed.

The couple told 10News the Corolla's driver told them he was late for work and needed to get his cell phone, but they advised him not to go to his vehicle.

A 27-year-old La Mesa man driving a Toyota struck the center divide about 2:30 a.m. An Arizona man then smashed his Mercedes into the Toyota.

He died at the crash site.

Authorities shut down two lanes of the freeway, leading officials to issue a SigAlert for the area for at least two hours, CHP incident logs indicate.

About half a mile south of that collision, a pickup truck crashed into several vehicles about 4:45 a.m. No major injuries were reported on that crash. Although a SigAlert estimated the lane would be closed for one to two hours, it didn't reopen until shortly after 11 p.m., after the auto was towed away.

No other information was available.
