HARLINGEN – Authorities are investigating a crash where a driver nearly went all the way into a business in Harlingen.

It happened at the intersection of East Taft Avenue and Commerce Street.

Two children are recovering after they were pinned under the vehicle when it crashed into a beauty supply store.

A man who works next door rushed to pull them out.

KRGV's Trason Bragg spoke with Alan English, who says there was no time to think, only to react. 

"First it was a little nervous because you don't really experience stuff like that everyday and then it just kicked in that we had to do something," says English.
