The California Highway Patrol says Corrine Truhe, 22, of Chico, has been arrested and is expected to be charged with DUI. Investigators say Saturday night, Truhe was driving a 2002 BMW under the influence of alchohol when she ran into the back of a pick-up driven by Matthew Killion, 22, of Chico. The impact caused Killion's truck to flip and land in the center divide on southbound Highway 99, just south of Eaton Road. The CHP says Truhe's car went off the road and hit a tree. She was hospitalized with minor injuries, and arrested. Killion suffered only minor injuries as well. The highway was shut down for about 30 minutes, then reduced to one lane for more than two hours as crews cleaned up the scene.
