Driver Dies in Crash Off South Bay Expressway Near Bonita

A driver was killed when a vehicle veered off the South Bay Expressway near Bonita Monday.

A man was traveling the wrong way on eastbound State Route 54 transitioning onto the northbound State Route 125 before the crash, according to CHP officials. 

Investigators believe the driver lost control of the vehicle and went over the edge of the transition road, landing in a ravine below.

It appears the victim may have been in the wreckage for at least a day, CHP officials said.

A tow truck driver was removing the wreckage via Quarry Trail below the transition ramp. 

A SigAlert was issued for the transition road but lifted just after 10:30 a.m.
