WINTERS — A woman was hospitalized Saturday evening following a crash at Railroad and Grant Avenue in Winters.

Police say witnesses reported seeing Nicholas Kershner, 30, speeding down Railroad Avenue in a Ford pickup when he ran the red light at Grant Avenue.

The truck sideswiped a light pole and sheared off its passenger side, investigators said.

Police arrested Kershner on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Kershner’s passenger, who police did not identify, was taken to Kaiser Vacaville where she is listed in critical condition.

Kershner is in custody at Yolo County Jail and his bail has been set at $1,000,000, after an enhancement in his original $50,000 bail.

Investigators said they do not believe the crash had anything to do with the Winters Youth Day festival.
