A 3-year-old and several others were injured when a car crashed into a San Diego restaurant after being involved in a prior accident.

On Tuesday, seven people, along with the 3-year-old child were injured at the Fresheria restaurant in Lincoln Park, San Diego, California, as a result of a crash that took place between a Ford Mustang and a Honda. As a result of the crash, the Honda flew into the restaurant, injuring those who were inside both vehicles and a number of people inside the establishment.

Authorities stated that even though the driver of the Mustang ran off, officers were able to detain her to verify if any drugs or alcohol were an underlying cause of the crash.

Over the last few months, there have been a number of crashes that have taken place that resulted in property damage.
