A 19-year-old Kuna woman who crashed her car into a tree Monday morning in a South Ada County neighborhood didn’t have to go to the hospital —like her passenger did – but she did go to jail, the Ada County Sheriff's Office reports.

Deputies arrested Brea P. Woods on a misdemeanor count of excessive DUI in connection with the crash. Woods registered a blood alcohol content level of 0.326, which is four times the legal limit for drivers of 0.08, ACSO reports.

Woods’ passenger, a 20-year-old woman, was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Information about her injuries was not available.

Deputies responded to South Galewood Way near Maple Grove and Lake Hazel roads about 11:30 a.m. Monday and found a Kia Optima had hit a tree. Deputies detected a strong smell of alcohol on Woods, who was identified as the driver, and conducted field sobriety tests, which she failed, ACSO reports. She was taken to jail, where she took a breath test and was arrested. She posted bond and is scheduled for an initial court appearance Thursday.
