LIVE OAK, Calif. -- On the side of the winding road that is East Cliff Drive, you'll find pieces of metal, half of a bumper and a cracked mirror. It's all that's left after a night of partying, burned up in flames.
"I was at the right place at the right time," said California Highway Patrol Officer Chad Jesse.
Officer Jesse was on a routine traffic stop down the road when he heard the loud crash. According to CHP, not only was 19 year old Brianna Delaney texting and driving she was also drunk. CHP said that caused her to swerve off the road, hitting a curb and driving straight into a tree.
"I noticed the vehicle was into the tree and flames coming out," said Officer Jesse.
