Car plows into DC child care center; no injuries reported

Debris was scattered across the sidewalk and roadway in northeast D.C. Friday morning after a car plowed into a child care center.

The crash happened around 5:30 a.m. in the 300 block of Eastern Avenue. FOX 5's Ayesha Khan says the crash happened at the Discovery Learning Academy before it opened for the day.

No injuries were reported.

Khan says the owner of the business told her he has been open for about three years. Parents said it was a miracle no one was inside during the crash.

Witnesses told Khan that the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed just before it slammed into the building.

Officials are conducting an assessment of the structural integrity of the building. Utility crews are also on the scene.

The investigation into the crash and the driver is continuing.
