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.
