Two people were injured when an SUV sped out of control into a restaurant in Covina Wednesday night.

The solo-vehicle crash occurred about 10:30 p.m. in the 1100 block of West San Bernardino Road and was captured on surveillance video.

The video shows a Kia Sorento traveling along San Bernardino Road when it loses control and the crashes into a brick wall at full speed.

The SUV was left halfway inside the Mar Y Tierra Restaurant, which was apparently closed at the time.

The front of the restaurant had to be boarded up Thursday morning after the brick wall was left in pieces.

Video from the scene showed two patients being treated after the crash.

Both were transported to a local hospital complaining of pain, Covina Police Department Sgt. Keith Sunderland said. Their injuries were not life threatening, he said.

Investigators do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash. They are looking into the possibility the driver fell asleep prior to the crash.

The building has been red tagged.
