At least four children were injured after a car drove into a preschool building.

Fire crews were called to reports of a vehicle which collided with a building at around 4.40pm (local time) on Monday afternoon in Santa Clarita, California.

The Signal reported the accident took place on the 28000 block of Seco Canyon Road.

Supervisor Leslia Lua said: "Units arrived on the scene and found that it was a one-story school building."

Two helicopters were dispatched to the incident for three pediatric patients who were reportedly minors, and a third child was transported for medical care via ambulance via fire crews.

Other reports state three children were taken to hospital and four may have been injured in total in the crash at La Petite Academy of Saugus.

It's believed to be a preschool and daycare centre.

Photographs of the incident show a wall completely crumbled after the crash, and sunken into the building.

Red and white tape has been set up to prevent people walking near to the debris.
