19-year-old Madeline Cast from Healdsburg was cited for driving under the influence after crashing her SUV early Sunday morning on Healdsburg Avenue just south of Alexander Valley Road.
According the Healdsburg Police Department, Ms. Cast hit a dirt embankment and rolled her Toyota 4-Runner. She was the only occupant in the vehicle and she was moderately injured in the accident. Sunday’s arrest is the second DUI arrest for Ms. Cast this year. She was also cited for a drunk driving in Sonoma County in March.
Being under 21 years old Ms. Cast could be charged by the Sonoma County DA with a variety of alcohol related California Vehicle Code violations. It is illegal for anyone under 21 to drink alcohol in California and to drive with any measurable amount of alcohol in their system and she could be charged with an infraction in violation of section 23140 for having .05% or greater blood alcohol concentration. She could also be charged as a person over 21 would be, with a violation of sections 23152(a) and (b), driving under the influence and driving with a .08 or above blood alcohol level.
However, due to her arrest arrest for DUI in March it is likely that the DA will charge her with a 2nd offense for “adult” DUI.
