CHICAGO (CBS)– An SUV slammed into a daycare center in Old Irving Park early Thursday morning.
The daycare’s front window has been boarded up at Milwaukee and Addison. The broken panels are by the side of the road after what police are calling a freak accident.
Police said a 33-year-old man was driving this silver Nissan SUV, heading southbound on Milwaukee Avenue, when he struck a pothole and lost control. His vehicle veered straight into the Concordia Day daycare window.
