PICK UP

A classic Chevy pickup truck took the brunt of the crunch when a suspected drunken driver slammed his SUV into it in Santa Barbara’s Upper Eastside.

The force of the impact shoved the pickup into a van parked behind it in the 2400 block of Santa Barbara Street.

A bystander, who happened to be retrieving his belongings from the pickup cab at the time, was injured enough to be taken by ambulance to hospital.

Police say a 19-year-old was arrested on suspicion of felony drunken driving causing injury and possession of marijuana.
