SAN JACINTO - An alleged drunk woman was hospitalized after her car hit another at a major San Jacinto intersection, sheriff's officials said on Sunday, Oct. 28.

The crash occurred at 4:10 a.m. Saturday at State Street and Ramona Expressway, a few blocks south of Mt. San Jacinto College.

Riverside County sheriff's officials said that Richard Thomas, 72, of Yucaipa attempted to make a left turn from northbound State Street to westbound Ramona Expressway.

Angelica Huaste, 23, of San Jacinto was driving east on Ramona Expressway, entered the intersection and the two vehicles collided, Sgt. Bryan DeLos said.

The crash caused major damage to both vehicles and Thomas was hospitalized, though the extent of his injuries was not disclosed.

Huaste was also transported to a hospital for evaluation before being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and causing injury, DeLos said.

She was booked into the Cois Byrd Detention Center, but was released after posting $50,000 bail, according to jail records.
