Friday crash results in DUI arrest

MIDDLETOWN – A Middletown woman was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence Friday after she crashed her car along Highway 29.


A report from California Highway Patrol Officer Adam Garcia explained that Rebecca Mary Eickhoff, 47, was arrested following the collision, which took place at approximately 1:25 p.m.


Eickhoff was driving her 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser southbound on Highway 29 south of Spruce Grove Road North near Lower Lake when she failed to negotiate a curve in the road, said Garcia.


Garcia said Eickhoff's car struck the embankment, with the collision causing her vehicle to roll over.


The car came to rest on its left side, blocking northbound traffic, said Garcia.


Eickhoff sustained minor injuries which did not require an ambulance transport, according to Garcia's report.


One-way traffic control was in effect for approximately an hour before the road could be fully reopened, said Garcia.


CHP Officer Nick Powell arrested Eickhoff, a businesswoman, for driving under the influence of alcohol, according to jail records.


Garcia said Powell is investigating the incident.
