A U.S. Navy sailor pleaded guilty Tuesday to driving under the influence and causing a collision by traveling the wrong way on the San Diego-Coronado Bridge last month.
Briana Rall, 24, a member of the U.S. Navy, drove a white Ford Fusion past the toll plaza and onto the bridge just after 4 a.m. on March 27.
When the authorities caught up with the car, Rall had already collided head-on with a Ford F-150 just 300 yards east of the toll plaza.
The driver of the Ford suffered three broken ribs and a swollen heart, officials said.
The driver of a third vehicle, a Dodge Ram pickup, was heading to work on base when he was struck by the F-150. The Dodge driver suffered moderate injuries and was treated at UCSD.
Traffic in both directions was held for several hours while CHP and Coronado police investigated.
On Tuesday, Rall pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury and driving with a measurable blood alcohol causing injury.
Sentencing is scheduled for June 20.
