Santa Clarita, California
An SUV accidentally slammed through a wall and into the classroom of a daycare facility in the Saugus area of Santa Clarita, sending three children to the hospital, although no major injuries were reported, according to authorities.
Paramedics responded to the crash reported at La Petite Academy located at 28041 Seco Canyon Road at around 4:30 p.m.
A statement from the academy said a "school family member's vehicle" struck the building and drove into a classroom, according to the Associated Press. Three children and a staff member were in the classroom and they were taken to the hospital for evaluation, the statement said.
"I was called and told the car went through the wall and that a bookcase fell on her, and that she's fine and to come see her," parent Allison Adler said holding her child Shayna. "I'm a physician, so I looked at her and I said 'OK, she looks good.' I was shaken but I was kind of relieved a little bit, too."
Shayna and another toddler had been trapped under a bookcase. A third child suffered a cut on his forehead.
