COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say four children in a preschool have been taken to the hospital after a car crashed into the building in a Columbia suburb, ending up entirely inside a childcare room.
Columbia police said on Twitter that none of the four children appeared to be seriously injured in the Friday afternoon crash at Cadence Academy Preschool in Irmo.
Police posted photos of a Lexus past a shattered brick wall beside a row of baby cribs.
Authorities say other children were in the preschool and were moved to a safe place until they could be taken home.
Police say the woman driving the car is being interviewed by officers. No charges have been filed.
The other children at the daycare were not affected by the collision. Daycare workers moved them to an isolated location inside the facility and parents are picking up their children now. pic.twitter.com/fqUuDUnH00— Columbia Police Dept (@ColumbiaPDSC) January 25, 2019
