Three people, including two young children, were injured Tuesday in a vehicle accident inside Markham Park in Sunrise.

Emergency crews responded to the scene on 16000 State Road 84. Police said it was a single vehicle rollover crash.

Sunrise Police say that Pamela Thompson was behind the wheel with her two month old son and two year old daughter also inside. All three were taken to Broward Health Medical Center. Their conditions are unknown.

Footage showed debris strewn across the park and the silver pickup truck  in a mangled mess. A tree was also ripped from its roots from the impact.

"It's insane, crazy," said Charlie Eiglarsh.

The cause of the crash is being investigated.
