A teenage boy was killed when his vehicle collided with another car after traveling the wrong way on a local street Sunday morning, according to authorities.

The 17-year-old resident of El Cajon, who wasn't named in a news release, was driving westbound in the eastbound lanes of Murrieta Hot Springs Road near Inverness Way at about 30 mph with no lights on about 1:20 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol. The boy, driving a 1990 Honda Accord, moved from the No. 2 lane to the No. 1 lane, directly in the path of a 2010 Ford F-150 pickup heading eastbound.

The vehicles collided, causing major damage to both vehicles. The boy, who was not wearing a seat belt, suffered major injuries. He was transported to Inland Valley Medical Center, where he later died of his injuries.

The driver of the pickup truck, 45-year-old Timothy Raymond of Murrieta, received minor injuries. The crash is under investigation.
