Children Injured in Crash Near Elementary School

A woman and three children were injured in a vehicle collision in Spring Valley Monday.

Ambulances were called to the intersection of Austin Drive and Ledgeview Avenue just down the street from Sweetwater Springs Elementary School.

Witnesses say a tan truck traveling eastbound rear ended a black Tahoe that had slowed down to turn into a parking lot.

The Tahoe spun and hit a minivan traveling westbound, witnesses said.

Cal Fire officials said the driver of the minivan was sent to Sharp Hospital with what was described as moderate injuries. The three children in the van were sent to Rady Children’s Hospital with moderate injuries as well, officials said.

The driver of the Tahoe was sent to the hospital to be checked out. Two children in the Tahoe were not injured.
