A woman suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol slammed her vehicle into a coin-operated laundry business west of Downtown early Monday morning, reports City News Service.

27-year-old Jannet Mayoralvillela was at the wheel of a black Honda Accord when she crashed into the laundromat at Venice Boulveard and Magnolia Avenue just after midnight.

In the crash, her passenger, a 17-year-old male, according to L.A. Now, was seriously hurt. Mayoralvillela and two other passengers had minor injuries.

When tested for intoxication, police say Mayoralvillela's blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit. She has been booked for suspicion of DUI.
