    • October 14, 2023

    A car crashed into a Kohl’s store in Huntington Beach late Friday, sending three people to a hospital, authorities said.

    The Huntington Beach Police Department responded to the Kohl’s store inside the Bella Terra shopping center, located in the 7700 block of Edinger Avenue, at around 8 p.m. after reports of a car crashing into the store, according to HBPD representative Jessica Cuchilla.

    Officers found three people with non-life-threatening injuries, who were all transported to a hospital. The store was open at the time of the crash, according to its posted hours. It is unclear if those injured were shoppers, employees, or bystanders outside.

    The suspect fled the scene and was apprehended by officers at the 16000 block of Beach Boulevard after a short pursuit.

    The suspect, described as a 54-year-old Asian man, is in custody. He was transported to a hospital as a precautionary measure but is not severely injured.

    Police believe that drugs or alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

    Social media footage recorded at the scene shows a completely shattered storefront and a large police presence.


    An investigation is underway.
