A Sacramento, California woman was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence and crashing her car into a Long Beach Fire Station Friday evening.
LBPD spokesperson Brandon Fahey says 57-year-old Karena Testman Benskin was the driver of a car that crashed into the LBFD fire station Number two loon the 1600 block of East Third Street.
Benskin allegedly crashed into the fire station’s garage door and was detained at the scene.
Police say Benskin was involved in a separate hit-and-run traffic crash near 2nd street and Temple Avenue before the firehouse crash.
Benskin faces one count of hit and run, causing property damage, and one count of driving with a suspended license due to a previous DUI. Her bail stands at $100,000.
No one was injured due to the crash, and the investigation is still ongoing.
