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.

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
