The Chico Police Department arrested a man early Sunday morning when he drove his car into a bridge off of Pine Street.

Police received the call about a single car collision around 12:46 a.m. Police said in a report that the driver swerved off the road and collided straight into the bridge railing.

The 25-year-old driver suffered minor injuries, but his female passenger had to be taken to Enloe Medical Center to treat fractured ribs and neck and back pain.
