Cynthia Sandoval, 42, of Ruane Street, was charged with driving under the influence Saturday night after she hit a car stopped at a red traffic light on the Post Road by Mill Plain Road.

The other driver called police when she got out to exchange information with Sandoval and, according to the report, it appeared she was intoxicated. Sandoval failed field sobriety tests and refused to take a breath test. She was taken to Bridgeport Hospital for evaluation and released from custody on a promise to appear Nov. 20 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
