FOLSOM — Two people were killed Monday morning when a wrong-way driver sped down White Rock Road and collided head-on with another car.

A 41-year-old man, later identified as Christopher Haynes, died after colliding with a 21-year-old woman driving a silver sedan near Prairie City Road. The woman was killed as a result.
