Two pedestrians were injured Monday afternoon when a car on Hollywood Boulevard crashed into the Museum of Broken Relationships. The black sedan hit the corner of the building at the intersection of Hollywood and McCadden Place just after 3 p.m. At the time of the crash, the driver was fleeing another hit-and-run incident that had occurred directly before, when the sedan had hit another vehicle near Hollywood and Las Palmas Avenue, according to LAPD Officer Aareon Jefferson. Jefferson told LAist that a DUI arrest was made related to the incident, and that the female driver was now in custody.

Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey told LAist that department received a call notifying them of the incident at 3:09 p.m., and they responded to the 6700 block of Hollywood Boulevard, where a single vehicle had left the roadway and struck two pedestrians. The two injured pedestrians, "an adult female in fair condition and a young adult female in good condition," were taken to area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries, according to Humphrey. Police are on the scene.

KTLA's Steve Kuzj recorded this video at the scene just after the crash:
