CHP: Mom tried to take blame for daughter’s DUI crash

California Highway Patrol officers arrested a Clarksburg woman Tuesday in connection with a drunken-driving crash. Also arrested were her parents, after one of them allegedly tried to take the fall for the wreck.

Laura Beth Sullivan, 34, was traveling southbound on South River Road near Rose Road at about 5:45 p.m. when her Toyota Tacoma ran off the road and struck a light pole and a tree, CHP Officer Bryan Konvalin said. Sullivan reportedly called her mother, 60-year-old Joan Ellen Kirtlan, who went to the scene along with her husband Gary Kirtlan, 64.

When officers arrived on scene, Joan Kirtlan allegedly reported that she had been driving the Tacoma, which Gary Kirtlan confirmed, Konvalin said. But the officers saw through the ruse and took all three into custody after putting Sullivan through a field sobriety test.

Sullivan was lodged at the Yolo County Jail on suspicion of DUI and hit-and-run, while the Kirtlans face charges of providing false statements and obstructing a police investigation, Konvalin said.
