LAKE CHARLES (AP) — Authorities say an 18-year-old woman has been charged with DWI after she crashed her car into a Louisiana State Police officer's car.

A news release says five people were injured in the crash Saturday at 5 a.m. at the intersection of U.S. highways 171 and 90 in Lake Charles.

Police say Anisha McClinton of Lake Charles failed to stop at a flashing red traffic light at the intersection and crashed into the officer's car.

Police say McClinton and her four passengers, who weren't wearing seat belts, were hurt. The officer was wearing a seat belt and was not hurt.

McClinton was charged with DWI, disregarding a flashing red signal and failure to wear a seat belt. Toxicology tests are pending.

It wasn't immediately clear if she had a lawyer.
