How Did a Car Crash Into Coconut Creek Preschool?

Posted by: DFX on Feb 26, 2016

School BusWhen you send your child to school, you expect your child to be safe. The last thing you expect is for a car to crash into your child’s preschool. Yet, that is exactly what happened at one Florida school. Consider a recent article for WSVN titled “Car crashes into Coconut Creek preschool.”

The author of the article writes, “A car crashed into a Coconut Creek preschool, Thursday morning, but there were no serious injuries. According to officials, the driver was with his 2-year-old grandson when he possibly had a medical issue, causing him to drive forward into the building that houses a child care center. ‘At approximately 11:08 this morning, here at Young Minds Learning Center, a vehicle came into contact with the building,’ said Coconut Creek Police Sgt. Katheryn Markland, ‘and as you can see, caused some structural damage.’ Witness Kaitlyn Robinson said, ‘It was going over the speed bump, went super fast, and then he slowed down when he hit the yellow pole, and then it went faster when it hit the window.’ Fortunately, the children were not situated in the front classroom, as they were out for lunch. One father picked up his daughter from the school, giving her kisses and hugs. ‘Are you OK?’ he asked her before giving her a kiss. ‘I heard the bang, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God, the kids, the kids!’’ said Robinson, ‘and then I ran out and saw the kid in the backseat. I grabbed the kid because he had some blood, and I quickly wiped it off.’”
