Girl, 17, arrested after DUI collision that injured five
February 24, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

A 17-year-old girl was arrested for drunken driving following a collision that injured five passengers early Sunday morning in Redwood City, police said.

At about 1:40 a.m., Redwood City police received a 911 call reporting a solo-vehicle collision at the intersection of Jefferson Avenue and Ruby Street.

Upon arrival to the scene, located in a residential neighborhood, officers found the crashed vehicle and determined that eight juveniles were occupying the vehicle at the time of the collision.

One of the passengers was transported to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening. He was treated for his injuries and released. Four other passengers, one female and three males, sustained minor injuries and were treated at the scene, according to police.

The 17-year-old female driver, whose name is not being released because she is a minor, had been driving at the time of the collision. Police said she is a resident of Redwood City.

Officers discovered bottles of alcohol inside the vehicle and near the scene of the collision, police said.

The driver appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and subsequently failed a series of field sobriety tests, officers said.

The teen driver was arrested for felony driving under the influence causing injury and was booked into Hillcrest Juvenile Hall, police said.

Anyone with information related to this collision is urged to contact Redwood City police at (650) 780-7100.
