The crash occurred just before 11:30 p.m. on the 215 Southern Beltway at Tropicana Avenue.  A blue Mazda was driving the wrong way on 215, traveling northbound on southbound lanes, NHP said. The driver hit a Ford F-250, forcing the truck off the road and into a concrete barrier. The Mazda spun out, hit a Hyundai and a BMW, then struck a tire that fell from the Mazda.  The female driver of the Mazda died at the scene.
