An 18-year-old Mesa woman police described as extremely intoxicated was arrested on suspicion of DUI after crashing her SUV into a large tree that wound up against a house in a Mesa neighborhood on Sunday.
Lanae Cummins, 18, was traveling south on Longmore about 5 a.m. when she failed to stop at the intersection of West Kiowa and drove into the front yard of the home, according to police.
Police said her vehicle struck a large tree that fell on the house, heavily damaging her car and the residence.
Cummins was taken to the hospital with injuries, but no one inside the house was injured.
The Associated Press reported Tuesday that Cummins told police she was playing a drinking game at a friend’s house with the caffeinated alcoholic beverage Four Loko. The drink contains 12 percent alcohol - 24 proof - and is sold in 23.5-once cans and is banned in some states.
