    The California Highway Patrol is reporting that two women were killed during a fatal head-on collision on northbound Interstate Highway 880 in Oakland on Saturday morning.

    The collision occurred at the Broadway off-ramp and was first reported at 4:18 a.m., according to the CHP.

    According to witnesses, the collision happened after one of the women came on to the interstate southbound, against traffic, with her headlights off. 

    Other vehicles sustained damage as drivers hit their brakes to avoid the vehicle traveling in the wrong direction. 

    The CHP issued a Sig-alert due to the collision, closing three lanes. It has since been cancelled. 

    The incident is still under investigation, including a possible DUI, but that's only conjecture since both drivers are dead.
