FORT WORTH _ A 70-year-old woman with two driving while intoxicated convictions now faces a third after police say she hit a city marshal's patrol unit head-on Wednesday night.

The wreck happened about 7:19 p.m. in the 9000 block of N. Normandale Street.

The deputy marshal, identified in a police report as M. McGuire, was traveling west on N. Normandale when a grey Kia traveling in the opposite direction suddenly crossed into his lane, striking his car head-on, according to officer Daniel Segura, a Fort Worth police spokesman.

McGuire, who was conscious and talking at the scene, was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Sanda Bloxom of White Settlement was arrested for suspicion of DWI after officers gave her a field sobriety test at the scene, Segura said.

The offense is a third-degree felony because of her previous two convictions.

She was booked into the Mansfield jail, where she remained Thursday with bail set at $5,000.

Tarrant County court records show Bloxom was convicted of her first DWI in February 2000. She was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 24 months probation.

In October 2008, Bloxom was sentenced to one year in jail and 24 months probation following her second conviction for DWI, records show.
