A car slammed into an ice cream shop yesterday, and the crash seriously injures 3 in Irvine.  Two teenagers were standing at the counter inside of the ice cream shop when a woman in her 20’s driving a Hyundai Sonata crashed through the front glass window, coming to a rest against the counter inside the store.  The two teenagers were seriously injured and were immediately transported to Children’s Hospital of Orange County.  The driver, who also suffered injuries was taken to Orange County Global Medical Center in Santa Ana.
