See the aftermath of Rosanna Arquette’s crash into a Malibu shopping center
Newly released photos and video of the car crash involving actress Rosanna Arquette in Malibu reveal the extent of the damage caused to a local Mexican restaurant.
The incident occurred when the “Desperately Seeking Susan” actress lost control of her vehicle and crashed into a shopping center in Malibu, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office.
While Arquette, who is 63 years old, walked away unharmed, the same cannot be said for Lily’s Malibu, a restaurant located in the Point Dume Village.
Footage from the scene shows Arquette’s BMW colliding with a pillar of the restaurant, which had to be evacuated following the accident.
It appears that the “Nowhere to Run” star also damaged two additional support beams that were holding up the building’s roof.
In addition to the collision with the restaurant, Arquette’s car also crashed through a glass barrier that separated the shops from the parking lot, resulting in debris and shattered glass scattered throughout the courtyard.
The right side of Arquette’s car sustained severe damage in the crash, which authorities believe occurred when she mistakenly drove forward instead of reversing out of her parking spot.
Despite the accident occurring near the restaurant’s outdoor seating area, no one was harmed.

Captain Mike Rivera of Los Angeles Fire Station 71 told “The Malibu Times” that Arquette was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure, but she did not appear to have any injuries.
“She was a little shaken up about what happened,” he said.
Nearby shops had to be closed temporarily while officials ensured that the building would not collapse as a result of the crash, according to the local newspaper.
