    A 28-year-old woman was killed in a head-on collision on Route 9 South in Newington on Saturday morning. State police said she was driving the wrong way on the highway.

    Two California Highway Patrol officers suffered minor injuries after their patrol car overturned during a high-speed pursuit this morning in Livermore, a CHP officer said.

    Two CHP patrol cars were pursuing a car on eastbound Interstate Highway 580 in Livermore near Altamont Pass Road at about 3:20 a.m., reaching speeds over 100 miles per hour, Officer Eric Anderson said.

    One of the two patrol cars, with two officers, rolled over during the pursuit, Anderson said.

    Both officers suffered minor injuries in the crash, he said.

    The other patrol car was able to continue the pursuit and eventually pulled the car over, Anderson said.

    The cause of the chase was unknown, the officer said.
