Troopers said Zelinsky sustained a "major injury" in the crash but did not indicate which hospital she was transported to for treatment. Rhen sustained a minor injury.
Troopers said Rhen was found to be under the influence. He is facing charges of driving under the influence (DUI), drug charges and multiple motor vehicle code violations. Neither driver was wearing their seat belt, troopers noted.
