The Honda SUV crashed into the patio wall of the Black and Blue restaurant, Santa Clarita, before reversing and driving away in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The six injured reportedly suffered only minor injuries and were treated at the scene.

Police found the car’s registration number upon arrival at the scene before arresting the two women a short distance from the crash site
KTL reported that a witness said the car was “making donuts” shortly before the incident.
Police found the car’s license plate upon arrival at the scene and found two women a short distance from the crash site on Magic Mountain Parkway.
The two have not yet been publicly identified, but it is believed they were involved.
They were tested for their sobriety before being charged with driving under the influence. Police said they could face further charges as the investigation continues.
Witnesses at the scene claimed the suspect attempted to close the intersection to perform stunts such as the donuts, but these were described as “failed” by an onlooker.
Similar cases of takeovers have plagued many cities in recent years, with the activity becoming increasingly popular as roads became quieter during the pandemic.
