Drink-driver crashes through restaurant window

Shocking CCTV footage captured the moment a drink-driver slammed through the window of a restaurant in Melbourne, Australia.

Diners can be seen enjoying Thai food at a large table when the window caves in and the bonnet of a large vehicle slams through the glass and into the unsuspecting patrons.

The force is so violent, it shunts those with their backs to the windows forward, with one male diner appearing to have suffered whiplash as his head is thrown forward with great speed.

Several other CCTV angles show the mayhem that ensues as waitresses and restaurant workers panic and desperately signal for help.

Amazingly, no one was seriously hurt, although a male and two women were taken to hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

Local news outlets are reporting that the 57-year-old driver was breathalysed and found to be three times over the legal alcohol limit. He is currently assisting police with their investigation.

Take a look at the CCTV footage below. It might make you think twice about booking that picturesque table by the window in the future.
