A woman was arrested on investigation of drunken driving after an early Saturday crash in northern Colorado Springs.

Police were called to the intersection of Briargate and Voyager parkways just after 2 a.m. Officers say two cars met in the intersection and both cars were badly crushed. The drivers were hauled to hospitals.

Crash investigators later said one of the drivers, identified as 51-year-old Melanie Roundtree of Monument, apparently ran a red light and struck the other car.

Roundtree was arrested on investigation of drunken driving and vehicular assault, police said.

The intersection where the crash occurred reopened at 6:40 a.m.
