Three people using ATM machines at a Bank of America in Anaheim were hospitalized after they were struck by a vehicle that jumped the curb, police said Thursday.

The incident was reported at 3:30 p.m. in the 2200 block of south Harbor Boulevard, said Lt. Bob Dunn of the Anaheim Police Department.

A motorist pulling up to the ATM machines jumped the curb and pinned the three victims to a wall and then switched into reverse to free them, Dunn said.

A husband and wife were at one of the machines, while an unrelated woman was at the other, Dunn said.

The male victim was taken to an area hospital with critical injuries and expected to survive, while his wife was hospitalized with stable injuries, Dunn said.

The second woman was critically injured, but was expected to survive, he said.

The driver remained at the scene and alcohol is not likely to be involved, Dunn said.

An investigation was ongoing.
