Suspected drunken driver side-swipes CHP car

SAN DIEGO - A suspected drunken driver sped down on the wrong side of San Diego roads and side-swiped a California Highway Patrol car early Monday.

The woman apparently drove west on eastbound State Route 56 then south on northbound Interstate 5, according to reports received by the CHP.

Officers spotted her car on Interstate 5 near La Jolla Village Drive around 1:45 a.m. when she side-swiped an officer's car after they attempted to stop her. She was forced to stop when CHP officers hit her car near Gilman Drive, according to the CHP.

The driver, who was found with bottles of alcohol in her car, was booked under suspicion of DUI, said the CHP.
