      Fatal Wrong-Way Crash On Highway 152

      An 83-year-old driver was killed in a wrong-way crash in Madera early Thursday morning, the California Highway Patrol said.

      The man was driving westbound in an eastbound lane on Highway 152 at a high rate of speed around 1:56 a.m., officers said.

      A 25-year-old man who merged into the eastbound lane to avoid a car on the right shoulder collided head on with the 83-year-old driver, officers said.

      The 83-year-old driver died at the scene.{}

      Investigators say that alcohol and drug use do not appear to be a factor in the collision.
