When officials arrived, they found two involved vehicles and began evaluating and treating four people who had been involved in the collision.
One of the vehicles contained three people, all of whom sustained moderate injuries. All three were transported by ground ambulances to a local hospital for treatment.
During their subsequent investigation, officers determined the driver of the other vehicle, Emily Hendry, 37, of Cottonwood, was showing signs of alcohol intoxication and she failed a series of field sobriety tests.
Based on their investigative findings, officers arrested Hendry and she was later booked into the Shasta County Jail in Redding on suspicion of DUI resulting in great bodily injuries.
Online jail records indicate she has since been released and is no longer in custody.
