The owner of a furniture store in Bell had to physically subdue a drunk driver who crashed into his shop last night after the driver tried to flee the scene, reports KTLA.

The crash happened at about 10:30 p.m. at the intersection of Gage and Flora avenues. The driver was at the wheel of a white minivan, and before crashing through the store's wall he hit another car, hopped a curb and broke down a fence. The van then went through the wall until only its rear tires and the back of the car were sticking out.

No one was severely hurt during the crash, although the driver was treated for minor injuries.
