Two California churchgoers were tragically struck and killed in an accident that occurred as they left their place of worship Sunday.
According to police, a driver accidentally backed onto the curb at East Sarang Community Church in Chino and struck six parishioners.
Congregants were reportedly at the church for an event when an elderly man accidentally backed his SUV onto the curb Sunday evening.
Two people died at the scene, according to Chino Police. The other four were transported to the hospital with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.
The victims were all women, according to CBS LA.
Police said the driver and his female passenger suffered only minor injuries despite having also collided with a tree during the accident.
After a preliminary investigation, police have ruled out terrorism in the case and said it was likely a terrible accident.
