Six dead after fiery wrong-way crash in Woodland

- Authorities say six people have been killed in a crash caused by a wrong-way driver on a Northern California highway. 

The California Highway Patrol says it received calls around 12:30 a.m. Sunday about a Chevrolet heading south in the northbound lanes of Interstate 5 near Woodland. 

The CHP says the 2013 Chevrolet with only the female driver inside collided with a Dodge carrying five people about 20 miles northwest of Sacramento. Both vehicles were engulfed in flames. 

Officials say the woman in the Chevrolet and everyone in the Dodge -- three women and two men -- died at the scene. 

Investigators will try to determine whether alcohol or drugs played a role. 

The Sacramento Bee reports the Yolo County Coroner's office will release the identities of the victims.
