SANTA ANA, Calif. (KTLA) — Three members of a family were injured when the driver of an SUV lost control and crashed into a restaurant.

The accident, which was caught on camera, happened around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at Big K’s burgers at 1320 W. First Street.

The video shows a white Ford Expedition bounce off a school bus and then veer right into the busy burger joint.
