On Thursday, December 6, 2018, at approximately 3:50 PM, officers from the Palm Desert Police Department responded to a three-vehicle hit and run traffic collision at Cook Street and Country Club Drive, Palm Desert.  It was determined the driver, Colleen Kuske, 70-years of Palm Desert, was traveling northbound on Cook Street when her vehicle collided with two sport utility vehicles at the intersection of Country Club Drive.  The driver fled the location of the collision. Kuske and her vehicle were later located in a nearby business parking lot. Parties involved did not sustain any injuries as a result of the collision, but during the investigation it was determined Kuske showed symptoms of being under the influence of alcohol.  Kuske was arrested for driving while under the influence of alcohol and hit and run, and was transported to a local hospital as a precaution.  Once treated, she was booked into the Riverside County Jail in Indio.
