A driver was arrested and booked into the Brazos County Jail Thursday morning after a fiery crash on Highway 6 in College Station.

College Station Police say right before 11:00 p.m. Wednesday, a car left the highway and crashed into Burton Creek, just north of University Drive.

Officials say the sedan landed upside down and caught fire.

Officers had to pull the driver, Hannah Couch, 23, from the car before it went up in flames.

Couch was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and authorities say she was placed under arrest early Thursday morning.

She's charged with driving while intoxicated.

She was released after posting a $3,000 bond, according to online jail records
