Wrong-Way Crash on I-8 

Two vehicles collided head-on as the result of a wrong-way driver in Alpine Thursday morning.

It was just after 2 a.m. when a Nissan Altima was traveling east within the westbound lanes. 

The Altima was driven by a female and this caused a head-on collision with a blue compact vehicle. 

Upon impact, both vehicles became engulfed in flames. 

Both drivers had to be extracted from their vehicles and were rushed to a hospital. Their condition is unknown at this time. 

It is also unclear whether or not alcohol factored into the collision. 

An active investigation is underway.

Although crashes involving wrong-way driving account for only 3% of motor vehicle accidents, they usually have a higher fatality rate as they are often head-on collisions. 

A study in Virginia concluded that those accidents which include wrong-way driving are twenty-seven times more likely to end in a fatality compared to other types of accidents.
