Terrytown, LA—Six children were rushed to the hospital after a parent, who was apparently dropping a child off at a Montessori school in Jefferson Parish, slammed her car into the building. According to information provided by WWLTV, a 10-year-old student suffered critical injuries in the crash.

Reports indicated a car smashed through the brick exterior of Stepping Stones Montessori School in Terrytown, pinning three students and left a massive hole in the building.

According to John Fortunato, a spokesperson with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office, six kids were rushed to Children’s Hospital for treatment.

Although four of the students were promptly treated and released, two others remained hospitalized with more serious injuries.

A 10-year-old boy, who remained unidentified, was listed in critical condition, said Children’s Hospital spokeswoman Cathleen Randon.

Another unidentified student, a 9-year-old girl was reportedly listed as “guarded,” or stable but critical condition.

A witness to the accident alleged it could have been “much worse.”

Reports did not specify whether any charges were expected to be filed in connection with the crash, or if alcohol and/or drugs were suspected.

Investigations continue.
