At least 19 children were injured Thursday when an SUV drove straight into a California preschool, police officers said.
The Suzuki SUV went off the road and crashed into the building in Anderson, Calif., around 2:30 p.m., according to the Anderson Sheriff’s Department.
A total of 19 children and two adults were in the classroom at the time of the crash.
The sheriff’s department said 14 of the children were taken to the hospital along with an employee.
Five of the children were taken to the hospital by their parents, USA Today reports.
A drug detection expert with the department determined that the driver was “disabled” at the time of the accident.
The extent of the children’s injuries was unclear on Thursday night. However, the sheriff’s office said in a statement that all of the injured are expected to survive.
