California state controller Betty Yee hurt in car crash

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — California State Controller Betty Yee has been hurt in a car crash but authorities say her injuries are non-life threatening.

The California Highway Patrol says Yee and her husband were in an unmarked car being driven by a CHP officer when it stopped in traffic and was rear-ended Friday afternoon in the Posey Tube, an underwater tunnel connecting Oakland and Alameda in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Yee and her husband received non-life threatening injuries.

The CHP says the other car’s driver was hospitalized for severe injuries and he’s suspected of driving under the influence of marijuana.

The crash pushed the unmarked state car into another vehicle but that driver wasn’t hurt.

The crash closed the Posey Tube in Alameda for nearly two hours.
