Two children and an adult were taken to a hospital after a vehicle jumped the curb and careened into a store in Brooklyn early Wednesday, authorities say.

Few other details were immediately available regarding the 8 a.m. accident near St. John's Place and Nostrand Avenue in Crown Heights.

However, what is known is that the two children were on their way to school when the impact occurred in front of the popular Two Saints bar. They are expected to survive.

Police responded to the scene and took the driver to the intoxicated testing unit where they will determine whether the driver was under the influence at the time of the crash.

Video posted to the Citizen app showed a heavy emergency response at the scene.

A cause of the crash remains under investigation.
