Five students were injured after an SUV crashed into their classroom Monday.

It happened at the Ronald L. Sodoma Elementary School on East Avenue in Albion just before students were set to be dismissed for the day. The SUV broke through a brick wall and went two feet into a third grade classroom.

Police say moments before the male driver hit the school, he had rear-ended a vehicle in the driveway of the high school. Police believe he may have had a medical issue. Though he was not injured, he was taken to the hospital to be checked out.

"It could be your kid they could be in a wheel chair right now but  everybody went home," Crystal Lowe told 7 Eyewitness News.

"It wouldn’t have ended that great if God wasn’t around here looking around."

At this time, the driver is not facing charges, though the accident remains under investigation.

The five students reportedly suffered minor injuries.
