SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The California Highway Patrol arrested 37 people on suspicion of driving while intoxicated on San Diego-area streets on the Fourth of July holiday and the preceding evening, the state agency reported Thursday.

No local traffic fatalities occurred during the 30-hour span beginning at 6 p.m. Tuesday, according to the CHP.

Among those taken into custody was a 23-year-old pedestrian who ran onto southbound Interstate 805 near 43rd Street in National City shortly before 10:30 a.m. Wednesday and took off all her clothes while crossing over to the northbound side of the freeway, according to police.

The San Diego woman, who was incoherent and believed to be possibly mentally ill or intoxicated, was taken to a hospital for an evaluation, NCPD Sgt. Julian Villagomez said. No injuries or traffic crashes resulted from the trespass, he said.

Statewide, road accidents claimed nine lives over the period, and 479 people landed in jail on DUI charges, according to the Highway Patrol.
