SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A young motorist was critically injured early Thursday when her vehicle was struck by a suspected drunken driver, who also was seriously hurt, during a police pursuit in Valencia Park, police said.
A woman in her 20s driving a 2001 Toyota was struck by a 1995 Nissan Maxima while making a left hand turn at Imperial Avenue and Valencia Parkway shortly after midnight, according to San Diego police Officer David Stafford.
At the time, the Nissan driver - a 31-year-old woman - was being pursued by police officers. Stafford said the older woman was a suspect in an earlier assault with a deadly weapon call in the 7100 block of Astoria Street.
She failed to yield to officers and was being chased for several miles when the collision occurred, he said.
After the collision, officers arrested the older woman on suspicion of felony driving under the influence and felony failure to yield.
She, along with the younger woman, was taken by ambulance to a local trauma center, Stafford said, adding that the suspect was in serious condition, while the victim was in critical condition.
