Diamond Bar, CA -

(FOX 11 / CNS) An off-duty Los Angeles police officer was arrested today on suspicion of drunken driving after he crashed a vehicle into a drive-through area of a McDonald's restaurant near a freeway in Diamond Bar, California Highway Patrol officials said.

The officer was taken into custody at a hospital, where he was treated for moderate injuries he suffered in the crash at about 1:15 a.m. at the Brea Canyon Road offramp of the eastbound Pomona (60) Freeway, CHP Officer Rodrigo Jimenez said.

Authorities did not immediately release the name of the 29-year-old officer.

According to the preliminary investigation, the officer was driving a Mazda 3 passenger vehicle on the offramp that leads to Brea Canyon Road when it crashed off the roadway and traveled across an approximately 50-foot area separating the offramp from the drive-through area of the restaurant, Jimenez said.

Los Angeles County firefighters pulled the man from the vehicle, and he was taken to UC Irvine Medical Center for treatment of injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening, Jimenez said.

The officer was believed to be the lone occupant of the vehicle, he said.
