An alcohol-caused crash early Friday resulted in the arrests of two persons after the driver proved intoxicated and her passenger had a warrant.

The crash took place at 2:10 a.m. in the 3600 block of Valera Drive where there were reports of sounds of reckless driving and a crash. Officers found a damaged white BMW which had hit a curb, driven onto the lawn of home and just missed a street sign. A man and two women were standing by the wrecked car. 

Police learned that passenger Juan Martinez, 22, of Ceres, was found to have warrants for his arrest. Driver Melissa Montes, 21, of Modesto, had a strong smell of alcohol on her breath and failed a series of field sobriety tests. She was arrested and booked for DUI.
