Police are investigating a crash involving a taxi that injured 23 people outside a San Diego club early Saturday.
The cab was apparently traveling about 15 miles per hour when it veered off the road into a crowd of people outside the club Stingaree, according to a CNN report.
23 people were taken to hospitals, and one woman's leg had to be amputated below the knee after being pinned between the wall and cab.
Authorities are looking into what caused the taxi driver to go off the road into the first place, according to San Diego police traffic Lt. Rick O'Hanlon.
He told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the authorities are looking at surveillance tapes from businesses, as well as taking statements from witnesses.
Several fights broke out during the incident, and the taxi driver, whose name has not been released, sustained some cuts and bruises, according to the CNN report.
O'Hanlon said that the authorities are currently treating this as "an unfortunate accident," and that they don't believe that the driver was under the influence or acted deliberately, according to the Union-Tribune.
