FAIRFIELD, Calif. -- Nine students were injured when a Solano Community College staff member, who appears to have suffered a medical emergency, drove his vehicle into a portable classroom on the Fairfield campus where students were taking a math test this morning, a Solano County sheriff's deputy said.
Eight students suffered minor injuries and one student suffered moderate injuries when she was trapped in her desk seat after the crash around 9:15 a.m., Deputy Christine Castillo said.
The male staff member in his late 40s suffered moderate injuries and was taken to a hospital. Drugs or alcohol are not believed to be factors in the crash, Castillo said.
Many students had completed the test but 10-15 students remained when a black Acura SUV crashed into portable classroom 1101, Castillo said. A sheriff's deputy stationed on the campus was the first to respond.
"We're extremely thankful there were not more serious injuries," Castillo said.
