CONCORD (CBS SF) — Three people were injured Sunday afternoon when a car driven by teenagers involved in a race crashed into a funeral home during a service, according to Concord police.

The 1974 Chevy Nova crashed into the Ouimet Brothers Funeral Home shortly after 1:15 p.m. Sunday, according to Sgt. John Nunes.

A 16-year-old boy who was driving the car and a 15-year-old boy in the passenger seat were injured in the crash, along with a 66-year-old man who was inside the building when the car struck, Nunes said.

None of the injuries appeared to be life threatening. The funeral home itself suffered significant damage, Nunes said.

It appear that the teens in the Nova may have been racing a 2004 Ford Escape that also contained two teens on westbound Clayton Road, Nunes said. At some point, the Nova swerved off the road and into the building.

No arrests had been made as of Sunday evening.
