A car slammed into an outdoor dining area at Urth Caffé in Santa Monica Friday night, injuring some customers.
The driver drove into a cement k-rail with enough force to knock it over and topple some tables and chairs where people were enjoying their dinners.
Santa Monica police confirmed that the driver was a 21-year-old woman from Pacific Palisades. She was arrested on suspicion of felony DUI.
The crash happened around 8 p.m. Friday, just ahead of a three-day weekend along with Valentine’s Day weekend and the start of the Lunar New Year.
A few people were injured and one of the diners was transported to the hospital with moderate injuries to a leg.
One of the workers said at least a dozen or so diners were present at the time of the incident.
