Fairfax Woman Hurt in DUI Crash in Strawberry

Crash took place on northbound 101 onramp early Saturday morning.

A Fairfax woman was injured in a crash on Highway 101 in unincorporated Mill Valley early Saturday morning — one in which she was later cited for drunken driving as she was being transported to a hospital, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP officers pulled up to a crash at the East Blithedale/Tiburon Boulevard onramp to 101 in the Strawberry area at 12:38 a.m., according to Sgt. Marcus Bartholomew. A woman in a 1990 Toyota Camry had struck a tree on the onramp. A medical crew responded and treated the woman for major injuries to one of her legs plus internal injuries, Bartholomew said.

Jenna Ring, 22, of Fairfax was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance. She was cited and released to the hospital.

While storing Ring’s vehicle, officers were taken aback when they found two very lifelike mannequin heads with hair in the trunk of the vehicle, Bartholomew added. 

CHP Marin patrol officers logged four DUI arrests on the first day of its Labor Day “Maximum Enforcement Period,” which started at 6:01 p.m. Friday and ends at 11:59 p.m. Monday. Several “speed teams” were scheduled over the holiday weekend on 101, Highway 37 and Interstate 580.

The CHP said the maximum staffing allowed officers to do their normal enforcement on the highways, assist motorists with disabled vehicles, keep an eye out for distracted and impaired drivers and seatbelt violations.
