BROKEN ARROW, Okla. -- Two people were injured when a car crashed into the South Broken Arrow Library on Tuesday afternoon.

A woman and her 4-year-old daughter were walking to their car outside the library, located between Garnett Rd. and 177th E. Ave., south of 101st St. South, when a car crashed into the building, clipping the bystanders.

Officials at the library said an elderly person was leaving the library and lost control of the vehicle, crashing into a pole, the two females and then the building about 4:30 p.m.

The child's hand was momentarily pinned by the vehicle's rear tire, but a bystander was able to free the child. Both of the injured pedestrians were transported to St. Francis Hospital in stable condition.  
The collision is still under investigation, however there is no indication that intoxicants were a factor in the collision, according to the police report. 

The car was towed away and a pole outside the building was hit and leaning, according to library officials.

The library will be closed Wednesday to assess and repair damages, officials said.
