A wrong-way driver slammed into another vehicle on northbound Highway 85 in Mountain View early Friday morning, leaving both drivers dead, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP Sgt. Daniel Hill said the driver of a Ford SUV around 1 a.m. was traveling south in the northbound lanes when they crashed into the front of a Honda Civic above Central Expressway.

The driver of the Civic was identified as a 35-year-old man from American Canyon, Hill said. The driver of the SUV has yet to be identified.

There were no passengers in either vehicle, according to Hill.
