Three people, including two children, have been injured after an Irvine woman drove her car into a Costa Mesa Liberty Tax office, according to a news report.
Costa Mesa police said that the 74-year-old woman drove her BMW 535i station wagon over a curb and through the glass storefront of a Liberty Tax office at 2200 Harbor Blvd. A five-year-old girl and a seven-year-old boy were taken to Hoag Hospital for treatment of injuries from the debris; a 22-year-old man was also treated for an eye injury.
Investigators said that alcohol or drugs did not appear to be a factor in the accident; the investigation is ongoing.
