A female motorist was killed, and several others injured, early Sunday morning in a multiple car accident on Interstate 805. The cars were headed northbound near the Imperial Avenue exit, at about 2:30 a.m.

“Officials said four vehicles were involved in the pileup, which they said began when a 2005 Toyota Matrix carrying three people struck a Honda, causing the Matrix to flip.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the driver of a 1997 Toyota truck then crashed into the overturned Matrix. A female passenger in the Matrix was later pronounced dead.

A solo motorcyclist was then injured when he struck one of the vehicles.”  San Diego Union-Tribune, 10 June 2012.
