The Region

A scantily clad Huntington Beach woman careened the wrong way on a downtown street and crashed her car into a Metro Rail construction site on 4th Street, injuring two workers, herself and her 2-year-old daughter as the car burst into flames, Los Angeles police reported. Bonnie Althouse, 31, led police on a wild chase, shimmying up a cable and crawling into a locked building through a small opening, Officer Roger Wilson said. After Althouse was found, dressed only in underpants, she was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs and child endangerment. The Metro Rail workers, neither of whom was identified, also were hospitalized, one suffering major internal injuries and the other a fractured right leg.
