Two people were killed, and two children are in critical condition after a wrong-wray crash in Perris early Sunday morning. 

According to the California Highway Patrol, calls came in around 2:15 a.m. Sunday morning for a Ford Mustang that was traveling on the wrong way of the 74 Freeway in Perris. Just minutes later, CHP says, reports came in of a head-on collision involving that Mustang and a Kia Forte. 


According to officials, the drivers of the two cars were killed in the crash. Two passengers in the Kia Forte, who according to CHP were under 18, were transported to the hospital.
