    A Marin County sheriff's deputy suffered minor injuries in a head-on collision with a suspected intoxicated driver early Sunday morning in Mill Valley, California Highway Patrol officials said.

    CHP officers received a call at 3:19 a.m. asking for help because a sheriff's deputy was in a traffic collision.

    The collision occurred on Shoreline Highway, CHP officials said.

    An investigation suggests that 34-year-old Justin Satterfield of Mill Valley was driving a 1997 Honda Civic on Shoreline Highway when he allegedly failed to negotiate a curve.

    A sheriff's deputy was coming from the opposite direction when the 34-year-old's car allegedly crossed in front of the deputy's and the two vehicles collided head-on, according to CHP officials.

    Satterfield was uninjured. CHP officers interviewed him and arrested him on suspicion of DUI causing injury. Satterfield was taken to the county jail.

    The sheriff's deputy was treated and released from a local hospital.
