Driver flees scene, later arrested for DUI, hit-rand run
One woman was injured when an SUV crashed into the porch of a South Taft home Wednesday night, another was arrested on felony DUI and hit-rand-run charges and another driver is still being sought.
Two SUVs driving westbound on Wood Street appeared to be chasing each other when they collided with each other at the intersection with Olive Avenue just after 9 p.m., California Highway Patrol officer Adam Taylor said.
The impact sent a Nissan SUV into the porch of a house.
The other vehicle, a Mitsubishi, ended up about 100 feet north of the intersection
There were four people on the porch, and one was injured.
She was identified as Virginia Delahoussaye, 40.
She suffered moderate injuries, Kern County firefighters said, and was taken to Kern Medical for treatment.
Witnesses told the CHP a woman was driving the Nissan and she and a male passenger fled on foot.
CHP officers later located the suspect, Alicia Longoria, on Tyler Street and arrested her for felony DUI and felony hit-and run, Taylor said.
The driver of the other vehicle also fled and has not been located.
