Two separate collisions in Napa County on Saturday resulted in arrests on suspicion of drunken driving, the California Highway Patrol reported.
At about 7 a.m., 18-year-old Brayan Roger Sanchez of Fairfield was driving a 2009 Chevrolet south on the Silverado Trail north of Yountville Cross Road when his vehicle left the pavement and struck trees and bushes, according to Marc Renspurger, spokesperson for the CHP Napa bureau. An 18-year-old Calistoga woman in the vehicle was taken by American Medical Response ambulance to Providence Queen of the Valley Medical Center for what the highway patrol described as minor injuries.
Sanchez was detained by CHP officers and booked into the Napa County jail on suspicion of causing injury by driving under the influence, a felony.
Later, at 10:06 p.m., a three-vehicle crash occurred on Old Sonoma Road south of Buhman Avenue, where a 2016 Ford Focus headed south on Old Sonoma crossed the center line and struck two other cars in Old Sonoma’s northbound lane — a 2018 BMW 640i and a 2012 Subaru Impreza, according to Renspurger.
The driver of the Ford, 33-year-old Sasenarine Vishnu of Novato, was detained on a felony DUI allegation and also taken by ambulance to NorthBay Medical Center in Fairfield, CHP reported.
Two people inside the BMW also were hospitalized with minor injuries, the 61-year-old female driver at the Queen and a 67-year-old male passenger at NorthBay. A 36-year-old passenger in the Subaru who was pregnant was taken by CHP helicopter to John Muir Health-Walnut Creek Medical Center as a precaution, Renspurger said.
