August 12, 2004
A 51-year-old Stateline woman was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after her car rolled into a tree on Highway 50, a Nevada Highway Patrol officer said.
Esperanza Cruz was given a blood test to determine the alcohol level in her body, the officer said.
The single-vehicle crash occurred at 6:30 Thursday morning along the highway between Lake Village Drive and Sewer Plant Road.
The officer said Esperanza was traveling 65 mph in a 35 mph zone.
“She lost it and when she did her vehicle went clockwise,” Trooper Roy Hutchings said.
The car, a 1990 Eagle Talon, ended up on the passenger side with its bottom against a tree, he said.
