BLOOMINGTON, Ill. -- A Bloomington woman is scheduled to appear in court today after injuring four people in a DUI crash this weekend.

Jamie Webb, 37, was arrested early Saturday morning after she ran a red light and crashed into a car in the intersection of Main Street and Empire Street in Bloomington.

According to The Pantagraph, Webb was traveling 45 mph to 60 mph at the time of the crash.

Four people in the other car were hospitalized. At least three of them are Illinois State University students.

One of the injured, Michael Collins, was transported the hospital where he underwent emergency brain surgery. He was last listed in critical condition.

Prosecutors said blood and urine tests indicated Webb had a blood alcohol level of 0.156 percent, almost twice the legal limit for driving.

She is charged with Aggravated Driving Under the Influence. Her bond was set at $500,000.

The crash remains under investigation.
