Corning woman injured in DUI crash
A 48-year-old Corning woman was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of a controlled substance after she crashed her 1998 Saturn sedan on Saturday.
California Highway Patrol reported Nancy Delanoy was driving the vehicle northbound on Black Butte Road at 5:04 p.m., at an unknown rate of speed, when she failed to stop at the stop sign at Corning Road.
"The driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, applied her brakes after going through the stop sign and slid across the road and onto the northside shoulder," said CHP Officer Phillip Mackintosh.
He said the vehicle continued through a ditch, a fence and into an embankment, at which time both of the airbags were deployed.
Delanoy was trapped in the driver's seat, but was rescued by emergency personnel, according to the CHP.
She was transferred by ambulance to St. Elizabeth Community Hospital in Red Bluff with what what reported to be major injuries, the CHP said.
After being arrested Delanoy was released to the hospital for treatment.
Her condition was not available by St. Elizabeth Community Hospital.
