A dry cleaning store is boarded up today after a car was driven through it early Sunday morning in Garden Grove.
According to Lt. Scott Watson of the Garden Grove Police Department, the incident took place at 4:53 a.m at 13047 Magnolia St.
A 22-year-old man from San Angelo, Texas, was driving southbound on Magnolia Street approaching Garden Grove Boulevard in his white Lincoln Town Car. The car crossed the boulevard but did not follow the curve of the road, jumping the curb of a small shopping complex at the southwest corner of the intersection.
The car crashed into the drycleaners, proceeded through the back of the structure, finally being stopped by the cinderblock wall behind the complex.
The driver, who suffered no injuries, fled on feet but was captured quickly. He was arrested on drunk driving and hit-and-run charges.
By Sunday afternoon the dry cleaning business was boarded up. Anyone with information about the accident is asked to contact the GGPD’s Traffic Accident Investigation Unit at (714) 741-5704.
