A car crashed into Jones Hollywood Cafe, located at 7141 Santa Monica Boulevard, at the Formosa Avenue intersection. Emergency crews from the Los Angeles County Fire Department were dispatched to West Hollywood on Tuesday night at roughly 7pm.
Sky5’s video footage of the scene revealed significant damage to Jones restaurant, with a section of the structure completely demolished. Bricks and debris were strewn on the sidewalk in the aftermath of the collision.
Details are scant, and it remains unclear what prompted the driver of the dark-colored four-door sedan to collide with the building. Fortunately, no injuries have been reported at this time.
The involvement of alcohol or drugs in the collision is undetermined at this point.
As authorities conducted their investigation and crews worked to clear the scene, traffic has been anticipated in the vicinity of Santa Monica Boulevard and Formosa Avenue this evening. Commuters are encouraged to take an alternate route.
