SANTA ANA (CNS) - Two people were killed this morning in a crash that involved a wrong-way vehicle and closed all northbound lanes of the Santa Ana (5) Freeway just south of the Garden Grove (22) Freeway in Santa Ana. 

The crash involved a motorcycle and a Jaguar sedan, according to the California Highway Patrol.``We got calls just before 4 a.m. of a Jaguar going the wrong way,'' CHP Officer Florentino Olivera told NBC4. ``Unfortunately, there was a motorcycle traveling northbound in the car pool lanes and they collided.''

Information was not immediately available on the gender or identities of the fatally injured people. 

All northbound lanes were closed at Main Street in the aftermath of the crash. Some lanes were reopened about two hours afterward.
