Four injured after car rams into daycare near Montreal

Three young girls escaped with minor injuries Tuesday after a car smashed through the plate-glass window of the daycare centre they attended and came to rest in a play area. The children were rushed to hospital for treatment along with the driver of the car, an 80-year-old woman who suffered shock and minor injuries to her back, said Const. Franco Di Genova.

LAVAL, Que. — Three young girls escaped with minor injuries Tuesday after a car smashed through the plate-glass window of the daycare centre they attended and came to rest in a play area.

The children were rushed to hospital for treatment along with the driver of the car, an 80-year-old woman who suffered shock and minor injuries to her back, said Const. Franco Di Genova.

The three girls were aged three, four and five years old and were not seriously injured, Di Genova said, adding one of them had been released from hospital and another was expected to be sent home by the end of the afternoon.

One little girl was either hit by the vehicle or flying debris and suffered wounds to her face, said Di Genova. She was expected to be released from hospital on Wednesday.

A doctor at Montreal’s Ste-Justine Hospital said she is stable and that the injuries could have been much worse.

“We’re pleased the injuries are not as serious as we could imagine given the situation,” said Dr. Antonio D’Angelo, the emergency room chief at the hospital.

The daycare is located at street level in a strip mall on one of the main streets in the city north of Montreal.
