This is the shocking moment a California woman nearly four-times over the drink-driving limit crashes into a restaurant.

During the busy lunchtime hours at Amerci Pizza and Pasta in Santa Clarita on Friday, Yvonne Tejada, 40, lost control of her vehicle and plowed through the shop’s front window.

Diners jolted up from their seats as the bonnet of the Tejada’s sedan piled into tables.

One 69-year-old man was hit by the car and rushed to hospital with moderate, but non-life threatening injuries, police say.
