A suspected drunk driver has left five other people injured after she failed to stop for two red lights causing another car to roll over.

According to Redding Police, they responded to a report of a two-vehicle rollover collision at the intersection of Shasta and Court Street at about 8 p.m., Saturday.

Police say a Toyota RAV4 driven by Taryn Elizabeth Curran, 30, of Redding was going northbound on Court Street and failed to stop at two red lights nearly hitting a child in the crosswalk.

Moments later a Buick Enclave holding four passengers including three children were going westbound on Shasta Street and made a left turn onto southbound Court Street.

When the Toyota ran the light it struck the side of the Buick causing it to roll over on its side. All passengers on the Buick were transported to Mercy Medical Center including:

- 33-year-old Star Elizabeth Webb
- Three children ranging from ages 5 to 8

Webb and two eight-year-old children had bruises and complaints of pain while the five-year-old suffered bruises and possible internal injuries.

Police then say Curran (suspected drunk driver) suffered multiple serious injuries, but none are life-threatening.

As investigators continued to work on the scene, witnesses came forward to report that a small child had been unrestrained in the Toyota driven by Curran.

Curran denied having a child in her car, but after a welfare check of the child, it was determined that it was her two-year-old daughter in the vehicle and suffered a bruise as a result of the crash.

The two-year-old was also taken to Mercy Medical Center and her injuries are not considered life-threatening at this time.

Police said that Curran exhibited signs of alcohol influence and admitted to emergency medical personnel that she had been drinking.

Curran was arrested for felony driving under the influence of alcohol and causing injury, felony driving with a blood alcohol level over a .08%, causing injury, five counts of felony child endangerment and providing false information to a peace officer.

Curran was released from custody due to needing ongoing medical treatment.

The case will be forwarded to The Shasta District Attorney’s Office for the prosecution of Curran on those list of charges.
