One person died Friday in a crash on State Route 905 in Otay Mesa, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The driver was heading eastbound at the Caliente Avenue offramp when for unknown reasons the vehicle veered off the freeway and into a sign at about 5:15 a.m, CHP said. The vehicle continued and struck another sign on Caliente Avenue.

No other information on the crash was available.

The investigation into the deadly crash shut down one lane of the eastbound offramp to Caliente Avenue as well as southbound Caliente Avenue on-ramp to SR-905. Just before 8 a.m., lanes remained closed.

A light box was also damaged, causing traffic signals at a nearby four-way intersection to stop working, the CHP reported.

No other information was available.
