An Orange County woman has been arrested after her vehicle struck another car and knocked down a traffic signal in Palm Desert Wednesday night.
According to Palm Desert Police Sgt. Eller, 36-year-old Cynthia Ordonez’ Chevy Equinox was heading eastbound on Highway 111 when her vehicle struck a Ford Taurus travelling southbound on Deep Canyon. Ordonez’ vehicle then hit a traffic signal pole that fell onto the sidewalk.
