When they arrived, they saw Defendant's car down an embankment near an on-ramp to northbound 880. Defendant told officers she was driving her car when it spun out of control. She admitted she was coming from her birthday party and had been drinking alcohol that night. Her brother was on scene and told officers he was not driving.
