The crash was reported to authorities around 6:40 p.m. in the 3800 block of Convoy Street. A Toyota Tacoma was traveling northbound on Kearny Mesa Road when the driver struck a curb, went airborne and landed on a Honda sedan that was stopped at one of the drive-thru windows.

The driver of the Honda, a 40-year-old woman, and two elderly passengers sustained minor injuries in the crash, police added.
Officers with the SDPD traffic division are investigating the incident. At this time, officers believe that the driver of the Tacoma was driving under the influence of alcohol.
As of 9:30 p.m., northbound lanes of Kearny Mesa Road were closed by law enforcement for the ongoing investigation and clean-up of the incident. Those lanes have since reopened.
