Two Taken to Hospital after DUI Crash on Cook Street

Woman hits two trucks, then crashes into Jensen's on Cook Street

Two Taken to Hospital after DUI Crash on Cook Street

 A 76-year-old woman suspected of being under the influence of alcohol ran a red light today and struck two pickup trucks before crashing her car into a Palm desert grocery store, a sheriff's sergeant said.

Judith Wasserman of Palm Desert was taken to a local hospital with non-
life-threatening injuries following the 10:40 a.m. crash, sheriff's Sgt. Radek
Horkel said.

Wasserman was northbound on Cook Street when she ran a red light at the
intersection of Green Way and her Chrysler Sebring struck a pickup truck whose
driver was making a left turn, Sgt. Horkel said.

The Sebring spun to the south, "drove over a raised curb, striking an
occupied pickup truck, and collided into an exterior wall of the Jensen's
market,'' Horkel said.

The male occupant of the parked truck was taken to a local hospital withnon-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the pickup that was struck at the intersection was unhurt.

Horkel said the preliminary investigation revealed that alcohol was a
factor in the crash.
