A car driven by a drunk driver crashed into the terrace of the Song Qi Chinese restaurant on avenue Princess Grace early on Saturday morning, causing considerable damage.

Fortunately no one was injured in the incident, which took place at 6 am when few pedestrians were out and about.

The driver, described as a British resident of Monaco, had stolen the vehicle from outside the Estoril building just a few hundred metres away before losing control and crashing into the outside seating area. According to police reports, the driver had two grammes of alcohol per litre of blood when he was arrested. The vehicle he had taken belonged to a delivery driver.

The restaurant repaired the considerable damage and opened for business as usual at lunchtime on Saturday. The road was closed for two hours while debris was removed.(Feature image: Daily Motion)
