Sebastopol police Sunday evening arrested a woman suspected of driving drunk and crashing into another car.

The 5:09 p.m. crash happened on Bodega Avenue and Ragle Road on the western edge of town. Driver Lopa Roy, 65, of Sebastopol, pulled out from Ragle Road into the path of an approaching Toyota Prius, Sebastopol police Sgt. David Harston said in a statement.

Two people in the Prius suffered minor injuries, police said.

Roy appeared to be intoxicated, failed sobriety tests and was arrested on suspicion of felony drunken driving causing injury, Harston said. She was treated for minor injuries at a hospital.

Harston asked anyone who saw the crash to call Sebastopol police at 707-829-4400.
