A man who allegedly crashed a car into a La Jolla restaurant while inebriated last weekend, injuring five people, was arrested Wednesday upon his release from a hospital.

Ronald Troyer, 66, was booked on suspicion of seven criminal charges, including driving under the influence of alcohol and a controlled substance, operating a vehicle without a valid license and DUI causing injury, according to jail officials.

About 7 p.m. Sunday, a brown Chrysler New Yorker driven by Troyer veered off La Jolla Boulevard, striking three pedestrians, ages 14 to 17, and plowing into Cass Street Cafe & Bakery, San Diego police reported.

The sedan, which narrowly missed two other young pedestrians, wound up completely inside the business.

The youths hit on the roadside were hospitalized with serious injuries. A married couple inside the restaurant sustained minor cuts and bruises.

Troyer, who police described as a transient, had two DUI arrests prior to the weekend crash, according to broadcast news accounts.

He was being held on $50,000 bail pending arraignment on Wednesday afternoon.
