Officers from the Rancho Mirage Police Department responded to a report of a single vehicle accident on southbound Bob Hope Dr., and the intersection of Hwy 111, in the city of Rancho Mirage.  Upon arrival, they found 2013 Honda Civic facing north in the southbound lanes of Bob Hope Dr. It appeared the vehicle had collided with at least three palm trees in the center median, causing minor damage to some irrigation pipes. The driver of the vehicle was located inside the car, in the driver’s seat.  The driver was identified as Anna Christina Tames, 23 of Palm Desert. She was alone in the vehicle, unresponsive and bleeding from the head.  Riverside County Fire Department units arrived and gave medical treatment.  Due to her injuries, Tames was transported to Desert Regional Medical Center, where she was admitted to the hospital.  During the course of the investigation, she admitted to drinking and driving.  She submitted to a PAS test and her preliminary blood alcohol level was .235%.  Upon her arrest for DUI, she submitted to a blood test.  Based on her injuries, and being admitted to the hospital, Tames was issued a citation to appear at court.
