Eleven people suffered minor injuries Saturday after the church van they were riding in was struck by a drunk driver, Los Angeles police said.

 

The suspect's black BMW collided with the van around 4 a.m. near the intersection of 6th Street and Western Avenue, police said. The front of the BMW was smashed after colliding with the rear of the van.

The 11 passengers in the van complained of minor injuries, but none were life-threatening, police said.

The suspect, whose identity has not been released by police, was arrested and booked for felony DUI, the LAPD said. KABC-TV reported the van was from New Life Vision Church in Arlington Heights, but a police spokeswoman could not confirm that Saturday.
