Woman killed in early-morning crash in Auburn

A Newcastle woman was killed early Thursday in a rollover crash along Interstate 80 in Auburn, the California Highway Patrol said.

The wreck was reported at about 2:30 a.m. along a stretch of freeway just east of Maple Street.

The CHP said a woman in her 20s was driving the wrong way eastbound on I-80 when she made a U-turn on the freeway.

She drove westbound for a short distance, made another U-turn and then her car crashed.

No other vehicles were involved.
