UPDATE: Alleged Drunk Driver Caused Toluca Lake Crash

Drunk driving was the cause of a two-car collision in Toluca Lake Tuesday that landed two people in the hospital with injuries, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

An impaired driver behind the wheel of a Toyota pick up truck was heading eastbound on Riverside Drive when he ran a red light and crashed into another vehicle traveling northbound on Cahuenga Boulevard around 5:30 p.m., said Sgt. Dawn-Amber McCallum.

The female driver of the struck car was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with a broken clavicle and rib bones as well as a bleeding kidney, while her passenger complained of neck and back pain, McCallum said.

The drunk driver, who was alone in the Toyota, was not injured, she said.

The man was arrested, but his name has yet to be released.
