The woman fled the scene of the accident and went to her home.  The CHP was able to track the woman quickly as she left her car and license at the accident.  Officer Morrison says when officers found the woman at a near-by home, she was taken into custody for suspicion of driving under the influence and hit and run. She was booked into the Wayne Brown Correctional facility.
