A young girl was taken to the hospital after a car plowed into a martial arts center in a northern Chicago suburb, the building’s owner and authorities said.
The crash happened around 8:15 a.m. Wednesday at the Ki Martial Arts Center in Mundelein.
The 37-year-old driver from Vernon Hills was dropping off one of three kids when the accident happened.
Police said one juvenile, who the owner said was believed to be 8 years old, was taken to Cordial Medical Center. The building’s owner said the child was released from the hospital and taken home following the crash.
Three children were in the vehicle at the time of the crash and 12 children were inside the building, all between the ages of 5 and 12, officials said.
There was no structural damage to the building, according to police.
The building’s owner said all parents were notified and the children were transferred to an adjacent building, with the exception of two who were taken home.
Details on what caused the crash weren’t immediately released. It was not clear if any charges would be filed.
