Veteran soap opera actress Jensen Buchanan is experiencing some real-life drama.
Buchanan — whose decades-long run in soap operas include stints on “One Life to Live,” “Another World,” “General Hospital” and “The Young and the Restless” — was arrested Wednesday in California for suspicion of DUI after crashing head-on with another vehicle.
A spokesman for the California Highway Patrol told TheWrap that Buchanan was traveling eastbound on Highway 154 in Buellton, California, shortly after 6 a.m. when her Mercedes drifted across the double yellow line, striking another car.
Both Buchanan and Bradley Asolas, the driver of the other vehicle, were hospitalized.
The actress was treated for minor injuries, while Asolas was treated for major injuries.
Interestingly, Buchanan’s most recent soap-opera run, on “The Young and the Restless” last year, was as Judge Elise Moxley.
