No injuries were reported Tuesday morning when a mom bringing her child to classes accidentally drove her car through the front doors of the Aurora Montessori School on the 3100 block of North Aurora Ave., Aurora.
According to a preliminary police investigation, the driver accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake about 9:15 a.m., causing her blue Honda to crash into a pillar and the school’s front doors.
The driver and a 5-year-old child in the vehicle were evaluated by paramedics at the scene but were not injured, police spokesman Dan Ferrelli said. Neither was anyone in the school.
A preliminary investigation found no structural damage to the building, although both glass doors of the front entrance were shattered.
The driver, an Aurora resident, was not ticketed because the accident occurred on private property and did not injure anyone, Ferrelli said.
School officials said they were proceeding with plans Tuesday for the school’s scheduled holiday program. The school offers a Montessori preschool program for 2- and 3-year-olds and a Montessori primary program for 3- to 6-year-olds, according to its website.Copyright © 2014 Paddock Publications, Inc.
