Vineyard Avenue in Pleasanton between Ruby Hill Boulevard and Machado Place has reopened in both directions following a Friday morning suspected DUI crash that damaged a power pole, according to Pleasanton police.
Shortly after 3 a.m. Friday, officers responded to a report of a vehicle that struck a pole on Vineyard Avenue near Machado Place, according to a Pleasanton Police Department statement.
Officers arrived and found the vehicle unoccupied and a power pole damaged.
The driver, identified as 31-year-old Jessica Heinbuch of Livermore, and an unnamed passenger were found leaving the area on foot, according to police. Both sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to a local hospital via ambulance.
Police allege Heinbuch was determined to have been under the influence of alcohol. She was arrested but later released to receive treatment for her injuries at a local hospital.
The department says it is pursuing criminal charges in the matter.
Police shut down the roadway following the crash and it reopened shortly after 3 p.m. once pole repairs were complete according to PG&E spokeswoman Tamar Sarkissian.
Sarkissian added that 96 customers were impacted by two brief power outages that occurred while crews repaired the power pole.
