Woman, 20, arrested for DUI following crash Saturday night
May 28, 2014, 05:00 AM

A 20-year-old San Francisco woman was arrested Saturday night for driving under the influence in South San Francisco following a crash, police said.

Maria Cruz-Montiel was driving a 2005 Toyota Camry at about 11:15 p.m. when her vehicle struck a street light pole in the 1300 block of Mission Road in South San Francisco, police said.

Witnesses said the vehicle was seen traveling between 60 mph to 80 mph on Evergreen Drive approaching the intersection with Mission Road prior to the collision.

Cruz-Montiel was speeding and failed to negotiate the turn, striking the curb on the western side of Mission Road. The vehicle then struck a light pole head-on.

The driver escaped unharmed, but her vehicle was badly damaged, police said.

When police made contact with Cruz-Montiel, she displayed signs of intoxication. After further investigation, police determined that she was under the influence of alcohol.

Additionally, Cruz-Montiel is under the legal age to consume alcohol and was unlicensed at the time of the crash.

She was arrested and booked into the San Mateo County Jail.
