La Puente woman accused of DUI following head-on crash in Hacienda Heights

HACIENDA HEIGHTS — A La Puente woman was behind bars Saturday on suspicion of drunken driving in connection with an early-morning head-on crash that sent six people to the hospital, authorities said.
Samantha Rey Rodriguez, 21, was booked on suspicion of felony drunken driving in connection with the 12:19 a.m. crash on Countrywood Avenue near Colima Road, according to California Highway Patrol officials and county booking records.
Rodriguez was at the wheel of a 1994 Acura Legend that slammed head-on into a 2006 Honda Civic being driven by a 66-year-old La Puente woman, CHP Officer Monica Posada said.
Six people were treated for injuries ranging from minor to moderate, Posada said, though it was not immediately clear which car or cars the injured people were riding in.
Rodriguez was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail pending her initial court appearance, records show.
