    A Sig Alert was issued in the South Bay Thursday after a two-car crash involving a possible wrong-way driver on Interstate 805, officials said. 

    California Highway Patrol was called about a car traveling northbound in southbound lanes on I-805 near San Ysidro Boulevard at about 5:05 a.m. 

    About 10 minutes later, medics were responding to a two-car crash north of state Route 905 junction that involved a reported wrong-way driver, CHP said.

    Officials said there were injuries but did not provide any other details. The San Diego Fire-Rescue Department said 30 crew members were assigned to the scene.
