    Crash at Hampton Road at Kiest Blvd. in Dallas.

    A driver is charged with intoxication assault after a crash that sent a utility pole and wires to the ground in Dallas early Saturday.

    Dallas police said it happened around 10:30 p.m. on Friday.

    Officers said a Chevy HHR driven by 27-year-old Maria Sanchez ran a red light at eastbound Kiest Blvd. at Hampton Road. The Chevy HHR collided with a Ford Flex.

    The Chevy HHR flipped over and knocked down a utility pole at the intersection. The utility pole fell onto Hampton Road and then was struck by a Nissan Titan.

    Police charged Sanchez, the driver of the Chevy HHR, with intoxication assault. A passenger in her car was transported to the hospital with a scratch above the eye and a fractured neck bone.

    Police did not release any information about the people inside of the Ford Flex and the Nissan Titan.
