WINTER PARK, Fla. (AP) -- State troopers say that when a car crashed into a central Florida day care, it slammed through the playroom where it hit three children -- killing one of them and seriously injuring two others -- and left 10 more people injured by flying debris.
The Florida Highway Patrol released a report on the April 9 crash Wednesday.
The Patrol says a convertible was preparing to turn right onto the private drive of a KinderCare in Winter Park when an SUV rear-ended the car. The impact propelled the car through the KinderCare parking lot and into the building.
A 4-year-old girl later died and two children had injuries that were described as incapacitating.
FHP says the SUV driver fled the scene but turned himself in the next day.
A Florida hospital says a child has died from injuries suffered when a car slammed into an Orlando-area day care center.
A spokeswoman for Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children said she couldn't release any more information about the victim, including the age and gender. One person at the hospital is in critical condition and five others in serious condition. One has been discharged.
Overall, 12 children and at least one adult were hurt.
Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman Wanda Diaz says a car went out of control after it was struck by a Dodge Durango, jumped a curb and smashed into the daycare, breaking through the wall and into the building. That driver wasn't hurt.
The Durango fled the scene but was located almost two hours later.
