Two people were killed after a wrong-way driver crashed his truck into a sedan on Highway 101 just south of the San Luis Obispo County line in Santa Barbara County.
Shortly before 1 p.m., a man driving a Chevrolet Silverado pickup entered the freeway on the Broadway southbound exit headed northbound. He then crashed into a Ford Fiesta with a female and male passenger inside.
The driver of the truck died at the scene.
The passengers of the sedan were transported to Marian Regional Medical Center in Santa Maria where the male driver died. His female passenger was treated for major injuries.
CHP officers shut down southbound Highway 101 for about two and a half hours.
