A car plowed through a tent and several outdoor restrooms near the drive-through line for patients getting COVID-19 vaccines at Soka University in Aliso Viejo on Sunday morning, sending three people to the hospital with minor injuries, officials said.
The crash happened at around 10 a.m. when a car in the drive-through line suddenly accelerated, hitting the restrooms and the tent, said Jessica Good, a spokeswoman for the OC Health Care Agency. The tent fell on to three other vehicles.
The driver of the car that accelerated was among the three injured. What caused the driver to accelerate was not known Sunday.
Good said the drive-through line at the vaccine site serves patients with disabilities. There’s also a line for walk-in appointments.
The drive-through was shut down temporarily after the crash, but Good said no one was delayed getting their vaccines on Sunday. She said everyone waiting in their cars was taken inside to continue with their appointments.
