LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Actress Halle Berry, charged with leaving the scene of an accident that injured another driver, surrendered Saturday to sheriff's deputies.

Berry went to the Lennox station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, where she was booked on a misdemeanor warrant and released, Sgt. Ronald Fernstrom said.

The charge, filed Friday by the district attorney's office, is the result of a Feb. 23 crash at a Sunset Strip intersection in West Hollywood. If convicted, the 31-year-old star of the cable TV movie ``Introducing Dorothy Dandrige'' could face up to one year in county jail and a $10,000 fine.

Authorities contend that Berry's rented Chevrolet Blazer ran a red light, struck another car and then left the scene. The actress suffered a gash in her forehead that took 22 stitches to close.

The other driver, Hatal Raythatha, has sued Berry for negligence. She suffered a broken wrist and contends she also had back and neck injuries.
