A motorist was injured in a collision at a Highway 29 intersection early Sunday morning in north Napa, and another driver was arrested for investigation of felony drunken driving, according to police.
Just after midnight Saturday, the driver of a 2004 Nissan Altima sedan heading east on Trower Avenue ran a red light and struck a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV on northbound Highway 29, according to Sgt. Andy Hess. The man driving the SUV sustained cuts and abrasions and was taken to Queen of the Valley Medical Center, Hess said.
Officers conducted field sobriety and breath tests on the driver of the Nissan, identified as 26-year-old Carrysa Colleen Bird of Angwin, according to Hess, who said Bird's blood-alcohol percentage was measured at 0.099, over the legal limit.
Bird was detained and booked into the Napa County jail on suspicion of causing injury by driving under the influence.
