Missouri day care becomes scene of car accident

Millions of parents drop their children off at day care centers all over the country every single day. While all parents worry about scraped knees or spilt drinks on new shirts, the thought that a car can come crashing through the walls is rarely entertained. However, recently in Missouri, a day care was the scene of a car accident that left several children injured.

The accident occurred when an SUV rear-ended another vehicle in the parking lot. The collision pushed the car into the day care center. Children became trapped under the Cadillac when it jolted into the building.

There were nearly 40 children inside of the center at the time of the crash. Two were trapped under the vehicle and three were injured in total. They were reported to have mild to moderate injuries from the crash. The driver, who was reported to be around 80 years old, was also injured.

Parents descended on the facility to be sure their children were safe. While there is no word as to whether there may be any charges filed against the elderly driver who hit the parked car, the children who were injured may have a long road to recovery, both physically and emotionally. Anytime a child is hurt in a car accident due to the wrongful actions of another, there may be cause for the family to file a civil suit in a Missouri civil court. Any damages a family may receive can help to alleviate the strain of medical bills or lost wages of a parent who has had leave work to care for an injured child.
