    Four people, including a toddler, were injured when a car drove into a San Diego convenience store.

    A Nissan Murango rolled over the sidewalk and through the front doors of a 7-Eleven on Sandrock Road around 9:30 a.m. Monday.

    The car came to stop in the back of the store, pinning someone against a refrigerator, San Diego police said.

    A child wearing a neck brace loaded into an ambulance and taken to nearby Rady Children's Hospital. Officials said the 2-year-old boy had minor injuries.

    Three other people were hurt, but their injuries were also non-life threatening, according to officials.

    The 52-year-old driver told officials the car had some kind of mechanical issue and described the brakes failing.

    Police have not charged the driver.
