WOODLAND, Calif. (AP) - Authorities have identified the six people killed in a crash caused by a wrong-way driver on a Northern California highway.

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.

The victims have been identified as:

  • 38-year-old Michelle Doxie

  • 19-year-old Yaneth Lopez Cambron     

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