A San Francisco man was arrested on suspicion of plowing his car through a Daly City storefront and injuring five people Thursday night, according to the Daly City Police Department. Just before 6 p.m., the motorist drove his 2004 Chevy Impala through the Metro PCS storefront in Mission Plaza, Sgt. David Mackriss said, and continued into the store for about 40 feet. The vehicle struck store patrons before becoming lodged in the rear wall of the store, Mackriss said. Firefighters had to extract the driver from the vehicle. The injured patrons and the driver were taken to nearby hospitals and treated for various injuries. None of the injuries were life threatening, Mackriss said. After being treated for his injuries, the driver, 46-year-old Martin Escobar, was arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence of a drug, which is a felony. “We believe it was PCP,” Mackriss said. Escobar was booked into San Mateo County jail.
