Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — An unidentifed 50 year old Altaville woman was arrested by the C.H.P. following a single vehicle accident at 2:05 Thursday afternoon.

The woman was driving her 1994 Buick southbound on Hwy 49 near River Ranch Rd. when due to her intoxicated state, she allowed her vehicle to travel to the right and off the roadway while negotiating a gradual natural curve to the left.

According to the C.H.P. report she overcorrected and traveled back across both lanes and off the east side of the road. The vehicle traveled up a steep embankment overturning multiple times. The vehicle came to rest on its roof at the top of the embankment.

The driver was transported via ground ambulance to Mark Twain St. Joseph’s Hospital and then flown to Mercy San Juan Medical Center in Carmichael via helicopter.
