Jenae Hampton, a Vallejo resident, was traveling westbound on Highway 128 in a 2005 Kia Sedona when the van crashed, the CHP said. A 4-year-old child was also in the van, the CHP said.

Both Hampton and the girl were transported by ambulance to St. Helena Hospital, treated and released, the CHP said. Hampton was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, the CHP said. She was expected to be booked into the Napa County jail, the CHP said.

The girl was released to the care of a relative, the CHP said.
