According to the accident report, CHP responded to an emergency call around 12:30 a.m. on the early morning of Jan. 7 about a southbound vehicle in the north lanes of Interstate 5 outside of Woodland. The sole occupant of the wrong-way vehicle, a female driver who has not been identified, crashed headlong into a northbound vehicle carrying five occupants. The impact set both vehicles on fire.
