Three toddlers were sent to the hospital after a car drove into a school building in Saugus Monday afternoon.
Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel first responded to reports of a vehicle versus a building around 4:40 p.m. on the 28000 block of Seco Canyon Road, according to Supervisor Leslie Lua.
“Units arrived on (the) scene and found that it was a one-story school building,” Lua said.
The incident was dubbed the #PetiteIC at La Petite Academy, a preschool and daycare, according to the school’s website.
Two helicopters were called to the scene for three pediatric patients, who were flown to a local hospital, per fire officials.
The children, all of whom were under the age of 5, were transported as a precautionary measure, according to Sgt. Adam Stoll of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
While the crash remains under investigation, it does not appear that alcohol or drugs were a factor, Stoll added.
