MARYSVILLE, Calif. - The California Highway Patrol said a woman from Smartville was killed in a two-car head-on crash Thursday night on State Route 20 in Marysville.

According to CHP, at about 11 p.m., a person speed driving a 2013 Honda was eastbound on State Route 20 east of Walnut Avenue when they entered the opposing lanes and began passing traffic against solid double yellow lines.
