SAN DIEGO (CNS) - One person is dead after being found on the San Diego freeway in the San Ysidro area, authorities said.

It was unclear how the person died, and no other details were released.

The California Highway Patrol was first summoned to the southbound side of the freeway at the Camino de la Plaza access -- near the connection with the Jacob Dekema (805) Freeway -- at 12:45 a.m., according to H. Austin, with the California Highway Patrol's Border Communications Center.

At 1:05 a.m., investigators called paramedics to the scene to provide medical assistance to at least one victim, he said.

The incident was later upgraded to a fatality, Dekema said.
