NATIONAL CITY, Calif. (KGTV) -- A woman and two children were rushed to the hospital Monday night after a two-car crash near Westfield Plaza Bonita around 7:15 p.m. 

Police tell 10News the silver Nissan was hit so hard it rolled down an embankment nearby and landed upside down. All three occupants were cut from the vehicle.  

The woman was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital and the two children, ages 8 and 10, were taken to Rady Children's Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the red vehicle that hit them was driving too fast and jumping the center divider, according to police. That driver is not suspected of driving under the influence. 

Reporter Brian Shlonsky was on scene around 8:15 p.m. as crews worked to remove the vehicle from the area and reopen Plaza Bonita Road. 

The area has been cleared and Plaza Bonita Road is now open at Bonita Mesa Road.
