CHELMSFORD, Mass. (AP) — Police have released the names of the two New Hampshire residents who died in a wrong-way crash on a Massachusetts highway earlier this week.

Massachusetts State Police say a Nissan Altima driven by 42-year-old Rebecca Savoie, of Nashua, New Hampshire, was heading south in excess of 100 mph in the northbound lanes of Route 3 in Chelmsford at about 1:30 a.m. Monday when it collided head-on with a Dodge Avenger.

Savoie was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Dodge, 21-year-old Noah Martin, of Hudson, New Hampshire, was taken to a Lowell hospital where he later died.

The cause, including why Savoie was driving on the wrong side of the highway, remains under investigation.
