Authorities are investigating after a vehicle crashed into a Phoenix business Tuesday afternoon.

According to the Phoenix Fire Department, the vehicle drove through a storefront in a strip mall near 32nd Street and McDowell. Pictures from firefighters showed the front of the business to be glass windows and the vehicle stopped deep into the store.

Two children, a four-year-old and a five-year-old, were inside the store and taken to the hospital. Firefighters did not immediately know if their injuries were caused by the vehicle or flying debris.

A Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Armando Carbajal said two vehicles crashed on McDowell Road, causing one to drive through the parking lot and into the business.

A 28-year-old woman and a woman in her 50s were in the vehicle and also hospitalized, according to Phoenix Fire Department Captain Jake Van Hook. All four suffered minor injuries, according to Phoenix police.

No further information was immediately available.
