A Rohnert Park woman was arrested on suspicion of felony drunken driving Saturday night after a Rohnert Park police officer and a Sonoma County sheriff’s deputy saw her minivan repeatedly collide with other vehicles during a mile-long pursuit, police said.
Yolanda Grose, 39, was booked on charges of DUI, hit-and-run and evading a police officer, Rohnert Park police said in a press release.
The officer saw Grose’s blue minivan strike another vehicle near the intersection of Rohnert Park Expressway and Commerce Boulevard about 10:50 p.m. and leave the scene, according to officials. The deputy, who was right behind the minivan, attempted to stop it, but Grose drove onto northbound Highway 101 with both the deputy and officer in pursuit, police said.
Her minivan sideswiped another car on Highway 101, then took the Golf Course Drive exit and struck three more vehicles on the offramp, causing one to roll onto its side, police said. Two of the three occupants of that vehicle were trapped inside and had to be rescued, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Those three victims were taken to a hospital along with Grose, who sustained minor injuries, police said. She was arrested after being examined by hospital staff.
