Car smashes through Radcliff daycare Wednesday morning

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A car smashed through the front wall of a daycare center in Radcliff Wednesday morning -- and the daycare owner says he's glad it struck where it did.

Just a few feet over, and the driver would have run right into the area where pre-school-aged children were playing.

No one inside R & L Childcare was hurt. It happened around 7:30 this morning.

The owner got a call from his wife, saying someone had run through the front wall, but he didn't realize how extensive the damage was until he got there. Radcliff Police say the driver was taking his son to another school -- not the daycare -- when he slipped on some ice in the road. They are calling this an unfortunate accident, and the driver will not face any charges.

While crews work to repair the wall, the daycare will operate out of a nearby building.
