    A 20-year-old woman suspected of driving drunk rammed her car into a semi-truck in Miramar. NBC 7's Elena Gomez reports.

    A suspected drunk driver sustained major injuries when she rammed her car into a parked semi-truck overnight in the Miramar area, police confirmed.

    The crash happened around 12:30 a.m. Thursday in the 9200-block of Activity Road.

    According to the San Diego Police Department, a 20-year-old woman suspected of driving under the influence struck a semi-truck with her Chevy Aveo sedan, slamming into the semi-truck’s rear axle.

    Police said the driver of the parked semi-truck was sleeping inside the truck at the time and woke up to find the DUI suspect had rammed into his truck.

    The woman suffered major facial injuries and head trauma in the collision. The driver of the semi-truck was not harmed and called authorities to report the accident and get help for the woman.

    An officer told NBC 7 the underage DUI suspect was allegedly in a drunken stupor when police arrived on scene.

    The crash is under investigation. Police spent hours gathering evidence at the scene and said it appears the DUI suspect did not attempt to use her brakes before plowing into the semi-truck.
