Wrong-way crash kills two

A 28-year-old wrong-way driver from Bloomington caused a predawn collision that killed him and the motorist he hit, according to California Highway Patrol officers.

Johnny Hernandez died at the scene of the 1:39 a.m. wreck today along Cedar Avenue near Santa Ana Avenue, between Interstate 10 and the Riverside County boundary line.

Hernandez had been driving a black 1972 Chevy south along Cedar Avenue when the car drifted into the northbound lanes and slammed into a green 1994 Toyota driven by 52-year-old Martha Patrica Pena of Rialto, CHP officers and San Bernardino County deputy coroners said in separate written statements.

Pena died at 3:08 a.m. at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center.
