Soap alum Jensen Buchanan may play a judge on The Young and the Restless, but off-screen she is about to face one herself. Buchanan was arrested on Wednesday for driving under the influence after she was involved in a head-on collision with another driver.

According to CBS Los Angeles, the actress was driving east on Highway 154 near Santa Barbara at 6:19 A.M. when her 2016 Mercedes S550 veered into the westbound lane and crashed into the driver of a white 2014 Ford C-Max. 

The other driver, Bradley Asolas, 56, suffered "major injuries" in the collision. Both drivers were taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for treatment. Buchanan, 53,  sustained minor injuries. Officially, she is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs with injury or death and driving under the influence of .08% alcohol causing bodily injury.

Buchanan is best known for her role on One Life To Live as Sarah Gordon. She became a fan favorite as twins Vicky and Marley Hudson on Another World. She is currently recurring on Y&R as Judge Elise Moxley.

Buchanan is being held on $100,000 bail at the Santa Barbara Sheriff's Department.
