SURPRISE, AZ — Four people, including two young children, were rushed to the hospital after they were struck by a car that crashed into a Circle K in Surprise Saturday night.
Emergency crews were called to the store near 114th Avenue and Bell Road around 6:30 p.m.
The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says the car was driven by an adult male accompanied by an adult female passenger.
MCSO says the man was parked in the spot directly in front of the store, backed into the front door about six feet, hit multiple people and then pulled out.
Deputies say two kids, ages eight and five, and two adults suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the crash. The driver and his passenger were not hurt, officials say.
MCSO says the man is suspected of being impaired and was taken into custody.
