According to a press release, the mother of two children was in critical condition, her nine-year-old daughter was in serious condition, and the four-year-old boy in moderate condition. They were transported to UMC.
The grandmother was not injured but went with the family to the hospital, said Strader.
A female passenger in the car had minor injuries, according to a press release. A man sitting on a bench also escaped with minor injuries.
The male driver is in custody for driving under the influence as well as unrelated traffic warrants, he said.
A section of the road in front of the Best in the West shopping center was closed for several hours.
