Officials said six people were injured after a car crashed into a Fountain Valley tutoring center, including the driver of the vehicle that caused the accident, Monday afternoon. Firefighters had to put up reinforcements to prevent the building from collapsing.
At approximately 1 p.m. near Brookhurst Street and Ellis Avenue, the Tutoring Club building shook. A 2011 Buick drove through the front of the afterschool academic program building. It stopped hitting the back of the building while a class was in session.
At least one person suffered cardiac arrests. Firefighters had to extricate a 32-year-old man who was left with life-threatening injuries, along with a 20-year-old who received serious injuries from beneath the vehicle. Emergency personnel rushed both victims to local hospitals.
Additionally, two 15-year-old boys, and a 67-year-old woman received minor injuries in the wreck. The driver of the vehicle, a 6-year-old Huntington Beach resident, was left with minor injuries.
Information from the Tutoring Club website indicated that the building was not yet opened for tutoring services at the time of the crash but between nine and twelve students were in the building at the time of the crash.
