A driver was arrested and booked into the Brazos County Jail Thursday morning after a fiery crash on Highway 6 in College Station.

College Station Police say right before 11:00 p.m. Wednesday, a car left the highway and crashed into Burton Creek, just north of University Drive.

Officials say the sedan landed upside down and caught fire. Officers had to pull the driver, Hannah Couch, 23, from the car before it went up in flames.

Couch was rushed to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and authorities say she was placed under arrest early Thursday morning.

CSPD says she was intoxicated when the crash happened. She's charged with driving while intoxicated.
