A suspected drunk driver was in custody Wednesday following a crash that injured four people outside a popular West Hollywood night club.

Deputies responded just before midnight to the Whisky a Go Go at 8901 Sunset Blvd., and located the four victims, all of whom suffered minor injuries, according to Lt. Hector Mancinas of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Two of the injured were transported to a hospital, he said.

Video from the scene showed the car on the sidewalk, crashed into a metal pole that holds up the awning outside the club’s entrance.

“All of a sudden I just saw people running and I was able to slip back inside,” Richard Wood, a witness to the accident, told NBC4. “This thing (the metal pole) was bent and it looked like this thing (the awning) was going to come down, but it didn’t come down.”

The driver was arrested at the scene and NBC4 reported his blood-alcohol content was twice the legal limit. The vehicle bore a Lyft sticker.
