Soap opera alum Jensen Buchanan (ex-Elise Moxley, The Young and the Restless; ex-Marley McKinnon, Another World/As the World Turns; ex-Sarah Gordon, One Life to Live) was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence on Wednesday, following a car crash that left the driver of another car seriously injured.
Officials say the 53-year-old Buchanan was driving her black 2016 Mercedes east on State Route 154 in Buelton (near Santa Barbara) early Wednesday morning when her vehicle reportedly drifted across a double yellow line and slammed into a white 2014 Ford C-Max headed west.
The California Highway Patrol reports that Buchanan's injuries were minor, but the driver of the other car, 56-year-old Bradley Asolas of Camarillo, suffered “major injuries.” Both were transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for treatment.
Buchanan was booked on charges of "driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs with injury or death" and driving under the influence of .08 alcohol causing bodily injury. She is currently being held on $100,000 bail.
