KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Authorities say three children and an adult were injured after an SUV collided with a car and sent it through the front of a Kansas City day care.

The crash occurred Tuesday at the Christian Academy Child Care east of downtown around 1 p.m.

Kansas City police Capt. Tye Grant says a Range Rover rear-ended a Cadillac, sending the car into the center. About 40 children were inside.

Two children were trapped under the Cadillac. That car’s driver ran from the scene. Three children were taken to the hospital, as was the driver of the SUV. Grant said all children inside the center are accounted for.

The conditions of the injured weren’t released.

Children who weren’t injured were being kept at a nearby house, where tearful parents embraced their kids.
