Car strikes Fort Pierce daycare center

FORT PIERCE, FL (WFLX) - A tragedy was narrowly averted Tuesday afternoon at a daycare center in Fort Pierce.

Just before 2 p.m., a woman was heading north on Sunrise Boulevard through the intersection of Parkway Avenue when she first struck a mailbox and then clipped a parked SUV, pushing it about 50 feet, before heading across the median, through the intersection and into the daycare in the 800 block of Sunrise.

No one at the daycare center was injured.

The driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

No word yet what caused her to lose control of the car.
