4 children taken to hospital after car crashes into Pennsylvania day care center

Four children were taken to the hospital, one of whom suffered serious injuries, the statement said.

“The driver of the vehicle sustained minor injuries, was treated and remains hospitalized,” it said.

The crash is under investigation, according to James O’Malley, the spokesperson for the district attorney’s office. He told CNN the woman was working as a delivery driver.

At the time of the crash — about 1:30 p.m. — there were about 17 children inside that room and about 79 total in the building .

All of the children have been accounted for and reunited with their families, the statement said.
