A Chico woman has been arrested for DUI following a three car crash along Highway 99 Monday night.

It all started around 10:30 p.m. The California Highway Patrol got a call about a car that had crashed into a tree after going down the embankment on the southbound East Avenue onramp. A person living at a nearby home went to check on the driver of the Ford Mustang and flagged down another driver, who parked his Kia on the shoulder. The CHP says that a few minutes later, the driver of a Toyota Tacoma rear-ended the Kia. The Tacoma continued down the embankment, crashing into the Mustang below before hitting several trees.

The 24 year old woman in the Ford Mustang suffered major injuries and is being treated at Enloe Medical Center for a broken hip.  The two passengers in the Kia were treated for minor injuries. The driver of the Toyota Tacoma, identifed as 24 year old Kiri Moore, was arrested on scene. She is now facing felony DUI charges.

After a windy Saturday and fairly breezy Sunday, the wind we've had is weakening as the month of February comes to a close. We can expect a mostly clear first morning of March, followed by more clouds and mild air by the afternoon.
