Driver crashes into Huntington Beach Kohl's store, leaving 3 injured

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (KABC) — A suspected DUI driver crashed into a Kohl’s store at the Bella Terra Mall in Huntington Beach Friday night, leaving three people injured, authorities said.

The crash was reported just after 7:50 p.m. in front of the department store in the 7700 block of Edinger Avenue.

Police said officers saw the driver flee the scene in a red truck, prompting a pursuit. The chase ended a short distance from the crash site after officers performed a PIT maneuver to stop the vehicle, police said.

The damaged truck apparently took down a light pole and came to a stop on the sidewalk.

Police arrested a male driver who they believe was driving under the influence.

An investigation is ongoing.
